A student of both private and group workshops, she settled near Harrisburg after receiving her degree from the Wyomissing Institute of Fine Art. In addition to her privileged participation in numerous solo and group shows, she serves on various art organizations and boards. Most notably Lyn is founder of the “Painter Capucines” which is the realization of her vision to establish a group of female artists who paint and display their works throughout the area.
