Lynn Grigsby grew up in a creative environment, the restaurant business. From an early age, she loved creating and working with her hands and was given the freedom to experiment in the restaurant kitchen. Wanting to test her talents beyond the family business, Lynn engaged in two traditional apprentices at an early age, one in a French restaurant and the other with a Swiss chocolatier. To further her education she then attended the Culinary Institute of America. Upon graduation she went on to study the art of pastries, chocolates and display work in Switzerland. She then spent several years as a professional chef, pastry chef and restaurant consultant and eventually opened her own business, "Temptations" a catering company and "Sweet Temptations" a wholesale desert company. For many years Lynn has been an avid art collector and harbored a desire to pursue oil painting. In the last several years she has shifted her creative energies from food to painting. Lynn finds many similarities between working with oil paints and working with chocolates and pastries. She especially enjoys capturing the beauty of the western landscape in oil paintings. Her goal is to capture on canvas the emotion a special moment has evoked. Lynn has studied with Mark Daily, Quang Ho, Skip Whitcomb, and Michael Workman.
