ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

For Lynn Morgan, creating art is an integral part of her philosophy of being consciously aware of the world around her.  Lynn has been creating art all of her life.  Until her retirement from the corporate world, art was one of her hobbies, but it was the only hobby that she never tired of.  She knew that when she retired, she would reinvent herself as an artist, and that’s what she did.  By attending classes and workshops, she learned techniques that have evolved over the years from realistic renderings to a much more abstract style.  Lynn loves to travel the world and is considered quite the adventurer by her friends.  Her works are inspired by the sights and sounds of her travels to various parts of the world.

Lynn is
a signature member of the National Association of Women Artists, the Florida Artists Group (FLAG), Women in the Visual Arts and the Artists' Guild of the Boca Raton Museum of Art.  She exhibits both locally and nationally and has won awards at several exhibits.




ARTIST STATEMENT

I create post-impressionist pastel paintings. The ideas for the paintings are often inspired by photos taken on one of my adventures, but it is always my intention to use photos only as an initial idea.  The emotion of my paintings begins with the application of soft pastel colors.   This is where I let my awareness of the beauty of brilliant color shine.  With every stroke of the pastel stick, I find delight in the tiny flecks of pure color that remain on the surface of the paper.
