Bright Trees

Gwyn has lived an adventurous life. After traveling to Indonesia to learn more about batik (a form of fabric decoration using wax and dyes) and earning her BA in art from Valparaiso University in Indiana, she lived and worked in many places, including a six month stint on a fish processing ship in Alaska. Wherever she lived, making and seeing art was a priority.

Gwyn has worked in many different media. Sometimes she starts with a clear vision and works methodically, sometimes it’s more spontaneous and playful. She always aims to get to the essence of the painting.
