Jenny Lynn

“I think of my work as visual poems -- realms in which I explore the interplay between object and image, dream and reality, chance and design, and collective and personal consciousness. Drawing upon my backgrounds in painting, photography and film, I “use everything” in my art, and mix careful planning with the “accidents” that happen during the creative process.”
- Jenny Lynn
