“It’s Art Darling”

Lynne Morgan was born in Bristol, Rhode Island, and raised on the Bay, which explains why water and sailing run deep in her artwork. The soft sound of the waves and the flutter of sails influence much of her art. In college she became a math major and art went by the wayside.

In the early 1980’s a new friend brought her back into the art world and then opened a home decor store and sold many of her art pieces there. She began in the field of Decorative Arts in the Washington, D. C., area. where she belonged to the National Society of Decorative Artists, working with faux painting, German Bauernmalerei, Norwegian Rosemaling and murals.

After moving to the Low Country nine years ago, Lynne joined the Beaufort Art Association, taking many classes in the mediums of oil and acrylic and, most recently, watercolor.

Lynne needs painting to be relaxing, therefore classical music plays a part. For some reason, the clouds and waves seem to take on a life of their own,(in a good way she hopes!!) while playing Stamitz’s Clarinet Concerto No. 10.

She enjoys painting many subjects but still loves the crash of a good wave.
