Lynda is a creative catalyst, an accomplished artist and teacher in a variety of media including altered art, bead weaving, chainmaille, calligraphy, handmade artist’s books and journals, and metal embossing. She is a founding member of - formerly an artist collective; also a Juried Artist and member of the Sonoran Arts League.

In 2005, Lynda was certified as a Repujado artist and teacher by MercArt USA. If you are unfamiliar with the art form, you are in for a treat! Repujado (pronounced ray-poo-ha-though) is the fine art of metal embossing.

Locally, Lynda has taught and exhibited at ART Unraveled, an annual mixed-media art retreat held in Phoenix, Arizona as well as the Hidden in the Hills Artist Studio Tour, an annual event in Cave Creek, Arizona. Visit her in 2015 at Robin’s Nest Studio on Surrey Drive in Cave Creek, just off Cave Creek Road.

For several years Lynda took her love for metal embossing and the paper arts "on the road". John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina quickly became one of her favorite places to teach and attend classes.

Lynda teaches locally at Arizona Art Supply in central Phoenix, private classes at her studio in the East Valley, and occasional classes in the north valley and Tucson.


“I enjoy working with metal - Pewter, copper, brass and aluminum.  My desire is to create artwork that can be handled, perused, enjoyed... Beautiful AND functional.” 

“The art of REPUJADO is a meticulous labor of love. Also known as metal embossing or metal relief, and always crafted by hand, REPUJADO is the working of metal to give volume and relief to the decorative design engraved on the metal.”
