As a youth, Lynn Whipple spent most of her time outdoors climbing trees, making things with her hands, and collecting old bits from nature. Surrounded by books, art, and music, it seemed logical that she would grow up to be an artist like her mother and beloved grandfather. Lynn, after a seven-year stint as an art director, prop master, and set decorator for Nickelodeon Studios, has been a full-time professional artist for the past 24 years. Lynn resides in Florida and shares studio space with her husband and artist John Whipple. They create art along side 25 other artists in a shared warehouse space which was founded by the Whipple family in 1987.
