Lynn Mehta

Lynn Mehta has painted for as long as she can remember. Growing up on Southern California's Pacific coast, and now living in Virginia near the Chesapeake Bay, she has a deep love for the outdoors and wild natural places. As a plein air artist, nature and painting come together in an inspiring way that is evidenced in her artwork. "Color, composition, and paint handling are key elements in my paintings and tools for my expression. The fluidity and flexibility of oil paint is well-suited to my creative process. When I paint I connect with changing light, the color of my surroundings, and movement. I focus on abstract shapes and forms creating a whole." Lynn is a juried artist in the Oil Painters of America, the Salmagundi Club, and the Washington Society of Landscape Painters. She serves on the board of the Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association and her work has been featured in Plein Air Magazine.
