Marie & Lynn
Marie and Lynn have been collaborating for three years. They design, build, and finish custom furniture and cabinetry. Lynn focuses on construction and woodworking while Marie focuses on design and painting. Marie has been painting and occasionally teaching for 20 years. The focus of her work has always been original and reproduction American folk art and furniture. She has begun working with barn wood and donates a portion of her barn sales to Save-A-Barn, a not-for-profit group that promotes the preservation of historic barns. She says, “When I work with barn wood, painting an historic flag…I marvel at how much has taken place in the life of a barn”.
Marie finds inspiration everywhere: in the woods and fields around her home, in books and movies, in tiles, carpets, paper: everywhere there is color and texture and form.
