Lynn Zimmerman is a compulsive maker of things — working with paper, paint, clay, fabric and fibers, cardboard, wood, metal, recycled materials, and objects gathered from nature — nothing is safe from her use and experimentation.
She studied drawing at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art in Philadelphia and has a BA in Fine Art and Education. She began studying classical realism oil painting in 2001. After moving back to New Hampshire in 2005, she continued those studies for a few years before joining classes at the River Gallery School.
Further training in egg tempera and watercolor painting, color theory, bookbinding, collage, and botanical illustration was obtained from study with various artists in the northeast and from attending classes at Rhode Island School of Design while earning her certificate in Natural Science Illustration.
Lynn began teaching watercolor at River Gallery in 2015. Now she also teaches classes in gouache, book arts, Sequencing, illustration, and collage. And every year she has the honor of leading River Gallery’s annual art trips abroad to France, Italy, or Spain.
