Lynn Letourneau

“Painting abstractly connects me to an intuitive Emergent Source. A visual language of personal and archetypal images will appear bridging my inner and outer world. I rely on my heart, body and mind to guide this process. Applying rhythmic layers of color onto canvas, I discern, make choices and the painting mirrors back to me how to proceed."

Her artistic endeavors have taken her to galleries, online platforms, and prominent art fairs worldwide, including notable exhibitions such as the Trevisan International in Italy (2011-2014), New York Art Expo, LA Art Fair, and the Affordable Art Fair (2014).
