Lynne Rutter

Lynne Rutter is a fine art muralist, gilder, and colorist, whose work spans four decades of experience, and emphasizes site-specific design. With an interest in period design and classical methods Lynne has worked on a large number of historic interiors, while seeking out authentic materials and techniques to use in her own artwork. In modern architecture she 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.

You can see more of Lynne’s work on her blog The Ornamentalist where she writes about the finer points of color and décor, and her adventures while traveling with her camera.

LYNNE RUTTER is a member of the Society of Gilders; a Fellow of Odd Salon and a longtime member of Artistic License, A Guild of Artisans. She is a participant in the International Decorative Painters Salon and will be hosting this event in 2023.
