Mary Lynn grew up in Tennessee, being first introduced to clay in elementary school.
A continued fascination with clay grew to eventually change a college major of graphic design to a degree in fine art with an emphasis in clay. Mary Lynn teaches clay and sculpture and continues to produce personal work.
Although I am interested in multiple media, clay seems to primarily be the common denominator that allows me to express the many ideas racing through my head. I love the feel and the suppleness of clay, yet its strength and determination humble me. Although function is part of my being, abstract form is a constant addition.
Mary Lynn is a multifaceted artist. Though she is best known for her clay work, her mixed media sculptures are impressive as well.
