More about Lynette:
Lynette Ubel—A contemporary abstract artist and award-winning creative talent. Her work is an effusion of freely flowing energy channeled through color, form and texture.
Lynette knew early on that she was destined to be an artist, so she fostered her creativity in a multitude of mediums and eventually chose a career in graphic design. With a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Communications from The University of Kansas, Lynette worked for five years at two different Kansas City advertising agencies. She left the agency world in 1989 to form her own business, Ubel Design.
While Lynette’s 30+ year career has produced a versatile portfolio of award-winning photography and design, it is her calling as an abstract painter that is emerging in full, vibrant fashion today. Her artistic vision now manifests itself in contemporary abstract acrylic paintings that feature an explosive style of remarkable depth, motion, and fluidity. Every painting springs from her free flowing curiosity, taking viewers on an ever-evolving journey of color, texture, and exploration. The layered, ambiguous forms in her paintings comprise a recognizable theme for people to see and interpret what they need to see in that moment in time.
Over the past nine years, Lynette’s art has been shown in numerous galleries, a one-woman museum exhibition, and corporate offices. Her work is currently exhibiting at The Leigh Gallery in Chicago, Hilliard Gallery in Kansas City, Chapin Gallery in Lincoln, NE and Strecker Nelson West fine art gallery.
