Our featured artist is Lynn Stevenson presenting Lighten Up: A Solo Exhibition by Lynn Stevenson from April 21 through May 31.
"Digital design and illustration is my full-time career and acrylic art had always been my personal therapy. My paintings were not something I intended to share or sell", Lynn said...that is, until friends started requesting it and making offers. Lynn's work is now in private collections around the country and in Canada.
Lynn's description of her work is "I'm not exactly sure how to classify my style - abstract, conceptual, sometimes 'Seussical', as I'm clearly drawn toward the whimsical. Wherever my art ends up, I hope it will lighten a room and make people happy."
Lynn is a professional advertising art director and graphic designer. Originally from PA, her family moved to TN (via VA, OH and NJ) where she earned her BS in psychology and an MS in advertising. After years of working for ad agencies and corporations in Dallas and Los Angeles, she now freelances from her home in Gig Harbor.
Also on display are two oars, painted by Lynn and donated to the Peninsula Art League for a silent auction which will help raise funds for the Gig Harbor Regional Arts Center.
