   Lyn has been creating art since childhood. While growing up on a farm in northern Missouri, necessity required her to be self-taught.  After marriage she and her husband settled in Kansas City ,worked in industry and raised three children. New opportunities abounded ,and Lyn returned to her art. She found herself studying extensively with other artists including Robert Vaughn and Russell Ferguson. After retiring from large companies she and her husband moved  near The Lake of the Ozarks in Mo, where she established a studio. Lyn paints almost everyday and is always on the lookout for new painting ideas.Over the years she has studied in workshop situations with many well known artists, including Matt Smith, Albert Handel, Joshua Been and many others. Although Lyn loves to paint in her studio, her greatest passion is plein air painting .  She paints her surroundings often and travels to locations within the U.S and Europe. Some of her favorites spots are in Arizona,New Mexico, and Colorado. She has also traveled to wonderful locations such as Nova Scotia , England, Ireland and France both painting and recording scenes for future paintings with her camera.  A master of several media, Lyn produces works in watercolor,oil, acrylic,encaustic and pastel. She occasionally teaches small workshops but more often ,she will be traveling and painting.  She and a circle of her best friends gather to paint when ever possible during the year.  Painting with her friends in a group is one of greatest joys.
