Her work reflects her interests in both representational and abstract art. Lynn’s most recent bodies of work are monotypes and intaglio prints that employ a vocabulary of forms based on years of working from observation of nature, still life and the figure. Lynn has taught at a variety of institutions over the past forty years. Her work is included in hundreds of public, private and corporate collections.
