“Vivid in my imagination from earliest days, Horse, is my visual vernacular.  While working, I spiral through what I think of as my Five R’s:  Rough In, Round Out, Refine, Reality Check, and Repeat.”

ARTIST BIO

Lynn's equine sculptures exude vivid personalities while her deep respect for anatomy and biomechanics is evident in each piece. She experiences frequent "reality checks" while riding and studying horses at a training stable near her Idaho home. 

A Signature Member of the American Academy of Equine Art and an Associate member of the Society of Animal Artists, her work has garnered top honors at the annual American Academy of Equine Art Fall Juried Exhibit; the 2018 Founder’s Award, the 2017 Sam Savitt Award for best depiction of equine movement, the 2016 Marilyn Newmark Memorial Award for sculpture and the 2011 Leonard J Meiselman medal for sculpture.
