Lynne McCarthyThe expressive arts are powerful and mysterious.  As women artists we are lovers of art – dancing, drawing, sculpting, writing and more.  Art is our practice, a way to translate and transform life experience.  Making art we connect deeply with self and other.  We step into life more creatively, more fully, and more embodied.  Women On Art is designed for women open to this exploration and for men who understand and appreciate the vital role of the feminine in their lives. I'm delighted to have you here.  Welcome aboard!

Lynne - I've been fortunate to work in clay for the past 27 years.  Sculpting's been my passion. Exploring the feminine form my focus.  My interest in poetry and photography grows.  I've also enjoyed a career in the exercise sciences, but am happy to place my attention here today -

Women On Art was created to be both informational and interactive.  The blog portion of the site will include regular posts by me and monthly posts by various guest artists.  The galleries represents both sculpture and vessels.

Just as the heart becomes carefree in a place of green, growing plants, 
goodwill and kindness are born when our souls enter happiness. ~ Rumi 
Tender words we spoke to one another are sealed in the secret vaults of heaven.
One day like rain, they will fall to earth and grow green all over the world. ~ Rumi
Life is ever arriving anew. ~ Jalal Ud Deen Muhammad Rumi 
 Artist Statement
I’ve thought about my experience as a woman – those moments of transformation and passage.  They were for me personal and private. There was no ritual, no ceremony, nor gatherings – but there was my art.
When looking at the body of work I’ve amassed – ceramic sculpture, photography and poetry – I recognize change and evolution.
I tend to give expression through my artwork.  I observe and record my life’s passages with art.  It is for me both gift and love.
