Born in Arizona, Lynn Felts has called Winfield home for the last forty years. She traces her passion for painting to a watercolor class as a sixth grade student in Santa Maria, California. An admirer of the impressionists, Felts credits the work of Georgia O’Keefe, Wolf Kahn, Chuck Close, and Bill Boulware as especially influential to her projects. She credits Warren Brown, instructor at Winfield’s Southwestern College, for opening the door to her rewarding career.
Felts has been an art educator for thirty-seven years, having taught art at all levels. She has been active in state and national Art Educator Associations, receiving honors and recognition for her dedication to her students. Though her gallery work is painting in various media such as oil, acrylic or pastel, “My best work is my students,” Felts said.
“Art goes to the soul and spirit of who we are. The process of creating requires a different mindset. We all will need the skills to be creative problem solvers as we navigate life’s journey.”
Watching those skills bloom in her students is Felts’ greatest joy.
Lynn Felts and her husband live in Winfield where together they raised their two sons.For information on gallery membership, guest artist exhibits, or to purchase artwork, please fill out the contact form below.
