ABOUT
Lyn Lyndall, the Artist
My name is Lyn Lyndall
Hello
Living in Asheville, NC, I was born in Trenton, NJ in a third generation artist family.  A graduate from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, I have been drawing and painting since I was a small child. I was shown extensively throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania, with several one-woman shows.

As a teenager, I learned to paint and design stage sets while accompanying my artist/actress mother, a 1948 PAFA scholarship recipient.  My primary love is of painting animal portraits.  I have devised my own technique for achieving a "photo-realism" look in watercolors.

I have worked at the Johnson Atelier Technical Institute of Sculpture, owned and operated by J. Seward Johson, of Johnson and Johnson.  It was there that I learned the fine art of the lost wax process of bronze casting and I instructed in the wax chasing department.

Loving all forms of art, I have worked with many mediums in many fields, e.g., book cover illustration, bronze casting, album illustration, motorcycle art, graphic design and advertising, t-shirt designs, visionary oil paintings and etchings.

My most recent work is in leather where I combine my love of animals and all things native to create a balanced blend of leather carving, painting, beading, and lacing.  These various pieces of exceptional quality, craftsmanship and beauty are each unique, one of a kind, signed pieces of functional art.

My latest achievement was being accepted as a member of  the Southern Highland Craft Guild.  This makes me most proud.
