For years my life was reduced to an About page. Awards I received, Peabody Award, Writers Guild of America Award, People’s Choice Award. Titles I held . . . Then one day it occurred to me. My life has been much more than a list of credits, hell, I scrambled from the ledge of a building in Needle Park to the heights of Madison Avenue and Hollywood. Yes, I have an About page, but my life has been way, way More About…
I paint impressionist oil paintings of the Southwest. I also do portrait commissions, including pets, children, and other humans. My oil portraits of life are not just about a painting but a symphony of colors celebrating the art of life. OPEN365.
I dabbled in arts and crafts for many years while working full time as an IT Project Manager. In September of 2014 I discovered colored pencils as a professional medium. Since then I have created hundreds of completed drawings and paintings in a variety of mediums including, colored pencil, pastel, watercolor, casein, acrylic and oil. My desire is to spend the rest of my life deeply immersed in the art community inspiring fellow artists and art enthusiasts along the way. OPEN365.
Since my youth, art has played a leading role in my life. I love creating beauty in everything I do and truly love the life the creative world of art has given me. In 2014, inspired by my own collection of crosses I began designing crosses made of steel wire and barbed wire adorning them with semi-precious stones, crystals, metal beads, silver, and copper wire. The crosses acted as a catalyst for my artistic expression. My continued evolution in design and success in the art world has also led to my CrossLynn Designs Jewelry line.
I create mixed media sculpture with rattan, handmade paper, cast flax and silk fiber, sometimes embellished with mono-prints infused with indigo, sumi ink and handmade plant based inks and stains. Aside from nature's inspiration, I’m also interested in the concept of the ethereal journey, motherhood, vacancy, loss, renewal and how emotional responses can evoke beauty. OPEN365.

When I begin to paint, I am all about composition and color. I may start with a rough charcoal sketch or just start applying paint and going with the flow and mood of the day. Santa Fe has wonderful light, sunsets and mountains so I am inspired by my environment. I show my work at the Houshang Gallery, Santa Fe, NM.
I am currently enjoying the freedom of exploration in materials and techniques. I have created a workbook, “The Unstoppable Artist” which has a wide range of traditional and creative art projects and examples. Making time for creative exploration is a passion that I transmit to emerging artists. OPEN365.
My media is lightfast colored pencils & fine archival papers. My intention is to engage viewers, so they can feel the sunny warmth of an adobe dwelling, be encircled by a breathtaking panoramic vista or introduced to ancient cultures & architecture. I am grateful to have the ability to draw & record the rare beauty, atypical history & extraordinary spirit that is New Mexico.
