Lynn: Fire and Water

Medium: Acrylic
Inspired by 18 years of living and working in Taiwan, which has had a profound impact and influence on my life.

About the artist
With a lifelong passion for design and Chinese culture, Lynn’s art piece combines the best of both worlds. An economist by training, and security analyst and chartered financial analyst by profession, she spent 18 years in Taiwan as a vice president with JF/JP Morgan Bank and, subsequently, as the executive director of the American Chamber of Commerce in Taipei for six years.

In 2001, she decided it was time to leave the financial world and started her own jewelry design business. This was the beginning of Lynn expressing her passion for design, color and texture.

In 2007, Lynn was diagnosed with breast cancer and her world was swallowed up by treatments and doctor appointments, including a seven-month stint at the City of Hope undergoing high-dose chemotherapy and stem cell transplant. As she continues maintenance treatments, Lynn finds the Queen’s Healing Through Art program enhances her quality of life, freeing her emotionally from the grind of cancer treatments and appointments, while allowing her to express herself through art.
