About Lynn Leahy
I grew up in Portland Oregon and was lucky to have a mother and grandmother who were teachers and artists. They nurtured my love for drawing and painting and very early on I knew I would be an artist. I studied art and business in college and obtained a Bachelors degree in Business Administration. College introduced me to sculpting and that became one of my passions along with painting. Over the years I have explored many artistic mediums one of these being; reverse painting on glass.

I first discovered reverse glass painting at an art gallery in San Francisco. I was mesmerized by these tiny Eastern European reverse painted glass tiles of a circus theme. The Circus is a theme I am particularly fond of. They were beautiful and I knew I wanted to find out how to do this. After much research I discovered there wasn't a lot of information on this art process so I came up with my own modern version of this technique and have been enjoying it as well as refining it for years.

I am happy to be able to share this with others and enjoy the process of teaching immensely.

When I’m not working with glass I sculpt with clay. PaperClay is a particular favorite of mine and in the past few years I have added it to my teaching curriculum.

For the past six years I have participated in designing and teaching a workshop retreat in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico with my artist group Tesoro Del Corazon. In addition to this, I have been fortunate to add La Cascade, a workshop in Southern France. Travel, adventure, and foreign culture are great passions of mine and to be able to combine my art/teaching and travel together is pure heaven.

Many of the countries and cultures I have been exposed to influence my artwork and photos from my travels serve me well for inspiration. I am blessed with two grown sons and beautiful granddaughter all of whom are very good artists and a supportive husband who, by the way, is not artistic but certainly loves to appreciate art.
