Biography

Lynn’s watercolor collages often deal with the vastness of nature compared to human scale. Large, exaggerated skies, tall, majestic mountains, vast expanses of peaceful fields, all echo this feeling. Her combination of values, color and multiple layers of washi (textured rice papers) creates an exciting composition full of energy and depth. Soft tones next to brilliant blues, purples, greens and golds, invite the viewer to walk through the landscape, to stand and be overwhelmed by the brilliance of the sky or even to experience the intimacy found in her collages of animals.

Lynn earned her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Southern California and continued with graduate work at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. For over 20 years she owned the Alyson Design Group, a graphic design company specializing in magazine and marketing design. Since beginning her painting career Lynn’s watercolor collages have won numerous awards in both regional and national juried exhibitions. She has been published in Watercolor Artist Magazine and in the North Light Publication, Splash 12, Celebrating Artistic Vision as well as Eyes On Landscapes by Blaze Hill Press. Her work may be seen regularly at Gallery 10, Sutter Creek, CA.

Quarterly, Lynn continues to give workshops at her studio in Pioneer, CA. She also does demonstrations and workshops for other art associations.
