Lynn Morgan, Palm Beach Gardens Member Since September 2009 Artist Statement Born in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, Lynn’s family moved to Florida when she was 13 years old. Her mother had been an art student at the Parsons School of Design in New York as a young woman, but her potential art career was cut short by the Depression. Lynn inherited her mother’s love of creating art, but the demands of marriage and, ultimately, single motherhood kept her on the corporate track. Lynn has a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and a Masters Degree in Human Resources Management. After 35 years in corporate America, Lynn retired and began pursuing her lifelong dream of being an artist. She has studied art at Palm Beach State College, the Armory Art Center, the Lighthouse Center for the Arts and has taken workshops with Robbie Laird, Barbara Nechis, Terri Ford and Margaret Dyer. After dabbling in acrylics and watercolor, Lynn discovered her passion for the richness and vibrancy of pastels, which comprise most of her work. Her varied subject matter is inspired by her travels in the US, Europe and the South Pacific and by her family: her daughter and two grandsons.
