Lynne studied architecture and design at the University of California, Berkeley, graduating with a degree in fine art. She furthered her training by working as a scenic artist, and apprenticing with several notable decorative painters in the San Francisco Bay Area, and spent four years as paint artisan and manager for a renown commercial atelier, where she coordinated the production of large scale murals for national and international installations.
In 1990 she founded her own boutique studio, with a mission to create "custom, fine art murals, and super-fussy ornament, the kind you have to do by hand, and that you want to look at up-close." The studio offers murals, trompe l'oeil, chinoiserie, cloudscapes, gilding, polychrome ornament, faux and decorative finishes.
In recent years her work has included more color consulting and interior design, and she has been featured as a designer in three of the last six San Francisco Decorator Showcase House events.
