Lynn Garriott-Porter

artist statement

Lynn Garriott-Porter was born in Fulton, Missouri and grew up living in the country loving the natural realistic beauty of her surroundings. Art was her first love and watercolor was her first medium of choice. Later in life she discovered colored pencil and gained a new love. She found with watercolor pencil she gets the pleasure of both mediums in one.

Her paintings have been exhibited in numerous shows, galleries, hospitals, businesses, cafés, and competitions in Missouri and Illinois. She is a member of the Colored Pencil Society of America, National Watercolor Society, Missouri Water Color Society, and a Juried Best of Missouri Hands Artist. She was selected as February 2008's profiled artist in Ann Kullberg's Colored Pencil e-zine From My Perspective and chosen to have one of her watercolor pencil paintings in Ann Kullberg's most recent book, Colored Pencil Secrets to Success, written for North Light Book Club and released May 2009.

For most of her life, art was only a part-time passion as she was employed full-time in the medical field. As a result most of her works have been commissioned and her registered trademark specialty is in turning Photo Memories Into Art®.

She still loves doing commissioned work and continues making new art. Visit the Columbia Art League Gallery in Columbia, MO, Capital Arts Gallery and Lynn Porter's gallery of photos on Facebook to see some of her newest works of art. Contact the artist if you are interested in purchasing an original or Giclee’ print.

You may contact the artist also if you are interested in a commissioned work of art for you or if you are interested in scheduling a workshop or a class.
