Lin La Mer has lived and worked in the Pacific Northwest for 17 years. She paints in oil and works out of her Kent, Washington studio. Her background has given her many opportunities for developing the meticulous and focused style of artwork that she is known for. Lin has traveled several regions of France and other countries in Europe, visiting museums and enjoying the rich and traditional cultures, which have been absorbed into her own individual style of painting.
“Whenever I paint, I strive to be true to my authentic self. I truly believe there is beauty in very common, everyday things whether manmade or naturally occurring. Looking with an eye toward seeing the true, simple wonders of life, I see the gentle curve of a leaf as having some of the same qualities as the cast curves of a “C” clamp. Seeing what others don’t and showing it to them to rediscover is what I attempt to do in my work.”
Lin has exhibited in solo and group shows throughout the Northwest and her work is included in numerous private collections.

Remember, we are electing new officers at our May meeting. If you are interested in serving, contact any of the current board members. We are particularly looking for someone to become our new Treasurer, as Deanna Morgan has done a terrific job the past couple of years but would like a break. Our Newsletter Editor, Yiota, is expecting a child this fall and would also like someone to take over her duties in the coming year. Our Publicity Chair position is also now open and we are looking for a new volunteer to publicize our events and group.
The Plein Air Schedule is posted and ready for your summer painting outings. We've moved back to Tuesday mornings and looking forward to seeing you outdoors in May.
