Judith Lynn was born
in Chicago and raised in Los Angeles. Growing up surrounded
by the lush semi-tropical foliage of California, she
developed a great love
for flora and fauna.
Ms. Lynn's first career
choice, however, was music. She toured the world as
an international opera singer, performing in the major
cities' opera houses of the United States, Europe and
It was while she was
in South America that her passion for the arts turned
towards painting. Influenced by her close friend and
artist, Frances Bull, she created a body of work and
was accepted by the first gallery to which it was offered;
La Galeria Centro de Arte Euroamericano.
Entranced by Venezuela's
tropical foliage and rare orchids and butterflies, Ms.
Lynn started her painting career. Sometimes, especially
with butterflies and insects, she mixes elements in
nature, exploring the possibilities of creating new
species; a metamorphosis of nature within itself. For
the past 20 years she has immersed herself in painting
nature, allowing it to reveal its secrets to her.
Her "Nature Manuscripts"
are a series of paintings in the "Illuminated Manuscript"
style and incorporate both flora and fauna. In some
paintings the script is her own poetry.
