Lynn Stephens Massey is a watercolor artist whose style and theme are ever evolving. She paints on Arches watercolor paper requiring the standard frame and glass. In pursuit of methods to avoid glass Lynn adheres paper to board, and after completion paints a clear acrylic varnish to protect the surface. Currently Massey is combining her artist's eye with an eco/recycling ethic to bring beauty to her latest works on brown paper bags and recycled papers. Using her own unique style Lynn brings life to found objects from coastal artifacts to bugs and insects. Her adept use of color and design make her pieces both dramatic and unusual. She is also using her creativity in making books that relate to nature.
Stephens Massey was first introduced to watercolors while enrolled at the Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland, OR. She delved deeper into her talents while studying illustration at The Art Center College of Art in Pasadena, CA. After a year at the Ecole des Beaus-Arts in Paris France, she was eager to begin her career as an illustrator. Lynn's professional career began in Los Angeles as an editorial illustrator. In 1981, she transitioned to New York illustrating for books, magazines, advertising.
Lynn lives in Norwalk, Connecticut. Her work is widely exhibited both locally and nationally. Lynn Stephens Massey's work is included in many private collections. Lynn shares her experience by teaching watercolor workshops.
