As a young art student at Cooper Union in New York City in the early sixties, Lynne wandered the galleries and museums with her classmates. While appreciating the old masters and the impressionists, it was the intense energy and boldness of the abstract expressionists that spoke to her.

Like the other students, Lynne studied life drawing and two and three-dimensional design, but in her painting class, she developed her own version of abstract expressionism. “This is the task of every artist,” she says, “to find her passion and follow it.”

Lynne began painting in oils, but switched to acrylics in the 1980s. They suit her style, which is to paint in layers, letting each layer dry in between sessions. She paints standing up, with her canvas on an easel, listening to music.

“Gesture is very important in my work,” she says. “A sweep of the brush or palette knife leaves its indelible mark in color on the canvas.”

Lynne’s dynamic paintings have been exhibited widely in galleries and museums, and her work is collected by individuals and institutions throughout the world. She paints in her home studio in Ithaca, NY.
