Lynne Rutter

Lynne Rutter is a fine art muralist, gilder, and colorist, whose work spans three decades of experience, and emphasizes site-specific design. Her interest in period design and classical methods led her to work on a large number of historic interiors, while seeking out authentic materials and techniques to use in her own artwork.
In modern architecture Lynne applies her knowledge and skill to adorn previously barren spaces with original designs and refined surfaces, using traditional expertise, even as the definition of ‘contemporary’ changes from year to year.
