Lynn was born in 1964 in Ohio, USA. She moved to Switzerland in 1985 where she obtained degrees in Applied Ceramic Arts and in Ceramic Design from CEPV in Vevey. She also has a Post-Grad Diploma from the Center of Experimentation and Research in Contemporary Ceramics (CERCCO) from the HEAD (Haute Ecole d’Art et Design) in Geneva.
Ceramic Residencies in Korea and China have influenced her artistic expression as well as the diversity of the American and Swiss cultures. She is methodical in her process yet yearns for the haphazard effects of the material in the creation of her artwork. Her ceramics have been part of numerous international competitions and exhibitions. Lynn is known for her “Spongeware” technique and has given demonstrations of this process throughout Europe and Asia.
She currently acts as co-president and events coordinator for the professional ceramics association, swissceramics, where she has been an executive member of the board since 2012. She has been responsible for numerous museum exhibitions for the association. On behalf of swissceramics, she is currently organizing the International Academy of Ceramics Conference in Geneva in 2022. www.swissceramics.ch
Lynn is also the director and founder of Ceramuse where she organizes and teaches ceramic courses and workshops.
