Photo 147Originally from the cliffs of Massachusetts, we are happy to host an accomplished artist, offering workshops, ongoing classes for children and adults, as well as her own private collection. For several years,  Lynn has taught hand-building with Clay to children and adults, passing on her passion, introducing new perspective, inspiring, and simply having the experience of creating with other people, brings a great inspiration to her work as well as spreading another way to communicate to those who have yet to try art as a viable form of emotional release and expression.

She has studied under a variety of accomplished sculptors, illustrators, jewelers, carpenters, metalsmiths and fiber artists.   Over twenty years experience working with different mediums… Former Executive Director: Gilmer Arts & Heritage Association, Ellijay GA, Former  Resident Clay Artist: Summit Studios – Blue Ridge Mountains Arts Center , Current Resident Artist: Heartwood Health, Art & Yoga
