Lyn Tietz – Scenes of Nature

On display in the Art Gallery, 2nd floor of the Villa Center

Lyn Tietz.jpg artwork

Lyn Tietz has been living in the western suburbs for 30 years. She is a graduate of the University of Illinois and has an Associate’s Degree from the College of DuPage in Interior Design. After attending art classes, she began her exploration into painting, and continues to take classes and workshops with many noted instructors.

She started painting 20 years ago with watercolor. Since then, she expanded her skillset to include pastel, acrylic, colored pencil, inks, and oil paints and has won awards in each of the mediums. Having lived in the Midwest for many years, her inspiration comes from the wonders of nature and the changes of the seasons.

Outside of painting, she owns an interior design business, teaches flower arranging, and is part of the DuPage, LaGrange, Oak Brook, and Addison Art Leagues. Her work is regularly exhibited at the Addison Galleria, LaGrange Art League, and DuPage Art League.
