Artist Statement

"Lace and Elegance" by Lynn Robey

"Lace and Elegance" by Lynn Robey

I am Lynn Robey from Dexter, Missouri.  I graduated from Southeast Missouri State University in 2008 with a BFA and a BS in Education K-12.  I graduated from Fontbonne University in St Louis with a MA in 2010 and a MFA in 2011. I finished my education at Fontbonne University with a Master of Arts in Teaching and Education and continued throughout that time learning more about myself as an artist.

I call myself the diverse artist because I create artwork across many mediums. Since I can remember I have been creating artwork, from drawing on the dirt with a stick to making buildings out of grass.  I have this God given gift, which I am sharing with the world.   Creating pieces of art whether it is paintings, ceramics, sculptures, drawing, metalsmithing, printmaking, or a combination thereof, is like breathing for me.
