Lynda Stoneham

The Art Junction was honored to exhibit the works of local artist Lynda Stoneham.  Her show “Dimensions of a Decade” is an exhibit of drawings and paintings selected from work that Lynda completed during the past ten years. Lynda expresses “this work reveals my insatiable appetite for making visual narratives of life around me. My tools and materials are pretty traditional, my style is realistic, but my subject matter is eclectic. I see exciting incidents of life everywhere and choose a medium according to the time available to record the scene. The phrase “Jack of all trades, master of none” applies to me as I work in moments stolen from a busy lifestyle without serious study of any single technique.”

Lynda Stoneham is a graduate of Ashland University with a degree in art education. She has taught art in Elyria and Bellevue City Schools and is currently the art instructor at Christie Lane School in Norwalk. Lynda is managing director of Artists’ Open Studio, Inc., a non-profit organization which supports adult artists with and without disabilities in painting and ceramic studios. She continues her education by attending frequent workshops at Cleveland Institute of Art. Lynda is a member of the Firelands Area Art League. Her work is featured at Hidden Creek Pottery in Milan, Ohio and in many private collections. She and her husband Dennis live in rural Norwalk. They have two grown children and two grandsons.
