Lynn Farwell  Contemporary Artist

 

 L y n n  F a r w e l l

"Creating art has been one of the main grounding forces in my life. It brings me into a state of total immersion and peace. I like variety so using different media does not intimidate me at all. Humorous, whimsical, powerful, peaceful, colourful, energetic are all adjectives that have been used to describe my work.

"One of the main things I like about being an artist is working at being different, creating something that is totally me and not like anyone else. I think this is the reason we are here; to define ourselves through creative outlets. I am so grateful for the opportunity to touch you with my art. May it bring you to a place of reflection and joy".
