Art has always been a part of Lynne’s life. Her very creative parents made sure that she was exposed to different forms of art from early on. That gave her an open path to explore her creativity.


Lynne has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from California College of Arts and Crafts and is the owner of Lynne M East Graphic Design Studio and Many Hands artist Cooperative. In recent years she has been applying her design expertise to gourd art.


Lynne started working with coyote gourds that were growing wild in her yard by painting them for Christmas ornaments. Having learned many new techniques she now creates pieces unlike any others. Lynne enjoys combining media and often adds metal art to her pieces.
