Drawn to the beauty of nature, Lynne has been painting her whole life. Throughout her school years she took as many different kinds of art classes as she could, from ceramics to calligraphy to lithography. However, she never found the intensive and thorough training that she desired until she met Robert Cormier, the instructor of the R.H. Ives Gammell Studios in Boston, MA and a former Gammell student himself. Lynne subsequently studied with him for 4 years.
Lynne then furthered her studies with Paul Ingbretson, another Gammell student, in Manchester, NH, for more than 5 years. Lynne’s training comprised as much focus on learning to see as on the craft of drawing and painting. To complement her intensive studio work, she studied plein air landscape painting with David Curtis, yet another Gammell student.
Lynne has won many awards and has numerous works in private collections. She is a member of the Guild of Boston Artists and the Rockport Art Association & Museum, where she exhibits regularly. Additionally, she is a member of and participates in regional and international competitions at the International ARC Salon, the Academic Artists Association, the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, the American Artists Professional League and the Oil Painters of America. Lynne currently works from north light in a studio in Lawrence and resides in Lowell, MA.
