As a graduate of the Boston Museum School and Tufts University, Lynne Sausele has remained a freelance artist ever since. In her career as an artist, she has worked as both a jewelry designer and a painter, both serving each other in a useful collaboration of color and design. Her experience is that each discipline continually inspires the other, finding it a beautifully dynamic way to work as an artist. The beaded work is an ongoing discovery of the remarkable array of beads available in terms of color, size, shape and texture, as well as an infinite way to use them in creating art works. The designs Lynne creates in her jewelry pieces are modern and unique to our time, yet follow some of the most traditional uses of beads, as she delights in being part of a practice that has been going on for thousands of years. In her paintings she works in oil in both abstraction and in a painterly realist style. The abstractions are often a reflection of the patterns in the beading work and the realist paintings are the simple pleasure of painting observations of the world as she sees it as well as capturing the essence of places she and her husband Hans enjoy exploring in their travels.
