Lynn Cummings is an award-winning painter in S. Burlington, VT. Her love of gardening, color and nature are evident in her brilliant florals, landscapes, nature-inspired works and most recently, abstracts.

Lynn has a master’s degree in education and has been teaching workshops and classes since the early 2000’s. She is a signature member of the Vermont Watercolor Society (former board member), member of Northern Vermont Artists’ Association (former board member), Helen Day Art Center, and River Arts (Chestertown, MD). She has been selected twice to participate in the Basin Harbor Club’s “Reflections” prestigious program for Vermont artists.
“Whether working in watercolor, acrylics or mixed media, I enjoy the unexpected surprises and the fluid shapes that form when water and pigment mingle as I help them flow across my canvas or paper. I love the textures from laying down layers of textured papers, found objects and bits of paintings as I begin a collage. Figuring out where to go once the initial shapes have been created on the page or canvas is an exciting challenge, much like working on a jigsaw puzzle without knowing what the end result will be.
I paint subjects, shapes and patterns that I find appealing and inspiring, and the more colorful, the better! If other people enjoy them too, I’ve met my goal as an artist. Sharing my enthusiasm and tips for creating art by teaching others to explore and enjoy making a work of art gives me great pleasure and inspiration as well.”
