About Lynne Looney
An Artist's Journey
Lynne Looney was born in Rosebud, Texas in 1953. Originally Lynne worked in publishing as an illustrator and commercial designer adding theater, illustration, and billboards to her repertoire.
After the former First Lady of the United States, Lady Bird Johnson, dedicated Temple as the Wildflower Capital of Texas, anyone traveling I-35 Highway between Waco and Austin, Texas during the 1980’s will remember seeing Lynne’s “Texas Wildflower” billboards.
Lynne’s love of color and flowers continued to grow while she obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the Instituto Allende in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico in 1980. After moving to Atlanta, Georgia in 1988, Lynne worked for the largest events designers in the Southeast. Since 1992 she has been painting murals and specialty finishes for high-end clientele throughout Tennessee, Texas, and Georgia. Lynne was also one of the most prolific artists for the well-known mail-order catalog, “Sugar Hill” where she designed and painted hundreds of decorative one-of-a-kind items that shipped all over the world until its closure.
Lynne’s past client list includes AFLAC, The Atlanta Ballet, Callaway Gardens, Coca-Cola, Crossville Model Railroad Club, Georgia Power, Lenhart Design Company, McLane Corporation, Springer Opera House, Sugar Hill Catalog, WCTE-TV, and mystery writer Iris Johansen.
Today, Lynne shares her experience and talent through private and public art events for all ages, groups, and skill levels. Attendees explore their artistic side through a range of creative possibilities when they join Lynne in a painting workshop, private lesson, art party, or special event. Everyone creates their very own masterpiece as Lynne guides them through the process of utilizing a variety of mediums.
