Bio: Lyn Asselta's career in art has had her work as an elementary school art teacher, a draftsman, a calligrapher, a workshop instructor, and a creator of award-winning fine-art gourd vessels. She finally turned to pastels to express her feelings for the landscape, where most of her memories were distilled. Lyn had experienced the salt marshes and waterways of Florida, the Smoky Mountains of the Carolinas, and the rock-bound coast of Maine. Pastel, as a medium, seemed to be the perfect metaphor for her relationship to the landscape.
Lyn is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America and the Pastel Painters of Maine.  She is also a member of Landscape Artists International, the Southeastern Pastel Society, the North Florida Pastel Society, Plein Air Florida, the American Impressionist Society, the St. Augustine Art Association and the Jacksonville (FL) Coalition for the Arts. She is the founder and President of the First Coast Pastel Society.  In 2009, Lyn was an Artist in Residence for the National Park Service at Acadia National Park in Maine. Lyn now lives and works in St. Augustine, Florida.  Her paintings may be seen at the W. B. Tatter Gallery in St. Augustine, the Melrose Bay Art Gallery in Melrose, Florida, and the Haley Farm Gallery in Kittery, Maine.
