Bio: I live in central California (by way of San Francisco, Connecticut, Utah, and Virginia), with my husband Steve, a pediatrician, and our 4 kids (15, 12, 9, and 6). I grew up in Virginia and retain a love for the lush green of the east coast, and the wonderful DC museums my parents took us to throughout my childhood. I majored in Art History at BYU, and have spent most of my life chasing beauty, through many kinds of art making. I also am passionate about art education for children, and started a parent art docent program 8 years ago at our K-8 school that is going strong and gets art into all of the classrooms.

Why Weepest Thou?, Lynne Millar
Artist Statement:
The process of putting a brush to surface slows time down for me so I notice subtleties – texture on a petal, a swipe of ripening pigment on fruit, light filtering through a child’s skirt – in ways I otherwise entirely miss. Painting is my way of paying attention to and processing the beauty and complexity of the world (and people) around me, through color, brushstroke, and texture.
