Lynne Whitsel has resided in Churchville,
Bucks County, Pennsylvania for almost
fifty years. She has always been interested
in art and has volunteered her artistic
talents to her community, school and
church while still raising a beautiful family
along the way. She later studied art at
Bucks County Community College where
she earned an Associate Degree in Fine Art
and went on to the Tyler School of Art
where she graduated with a Bachelor of
Fine Arts Degree, Presidents Scholar,
specializing in graphic design.  For the
next ten years she ran her own successful
business designing and illustrating
brochures, catalogs, ads, signs and
greeting cards. Eventually, the computer
revolution changed the face of graphic
design. Time in front of the computer kept
increasing and she soon found herself
dealing with technology more than with
the satisfying act of drawing. She left the
field to pursue the fine art of pastel
painting. Working in the realist tradition,
her subject matter includes portraits, still
life, animals and landscape. When working
on landscapes, she especially enjoys
working en plein air because of the
spontaneity that occurs when working
quickly. She took a workshop in oil pastel
and has explored this medium with great
success. Rotating between soft pastel and
oil pastel provides a change of pace. As a
member of the Doylestown Art League,
The Oil Pastel Society and The Ivyland Art
Group, she has had three solo exhibitions,
participated in many art shows and won
silver awards in several shows. Both her
soft pastel and oil pastel paintings are
included in many private collections.
