• Lynne Taetzsch

    I've loved art since I was a kid spending all my allowance on art and craft supplies.  When I was a teenager, I sketched and painted portraits of everyone in the family who would sit for me. 
    
    At Cooper Union in NYC, I studied life drawing and two and three-dimensional design, but I also fell in love with the abstract expressionist painters I saw in the galleries downtown.  My own art became more abstract until I found a way to express myself through gesture and improvisation. 
    
    Each new blank canvas is a challenge and an adventure.  I paint standing up at an easel, listening to music, responding spontaneously to the image in front of me. I'm in love with color, form and movement--exploring new paths for the eye to take as it sweeps the emerging composition.

  • I have life-long experience in working with oil paint and acrylics.  I am an expert and painting with a brush and palette knife.  Color and composition are the focus of my work.
