Lynn Morgan


“Helping Hands” © Lynn Morgan

Name: Lynn Morgan
Bio: Lynn Morgan was born in Grosse Pointe, Michigan; the family moved to Florida when she was 13 years old and she has been there ever since. She took a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and a Masters Degree in Human Resources Management but after 35 years in corporate America, she retired to follow her particular rainbow. She studied art at Palm Beach State College, the Armory Art Center, and the Lighthouse Center for the Arts and has taken workshops with Robbie Laird, Barbara Nechis, Terri Ford and Margaret Dyer. Lynn worked in acrylic and watercolour until she discovered the richness and vibrancy of pastels. Her varied subject matter is inspired by her travels in the US, Europe and the South Pacific, and by her family.
