About the Artist

Lynn Yuhr's art is inspired by 2 things: a love of nature and the vivid colors that surround her living in Miami. She uses them as a focal point in her contemporary jewelry, art journals and mixed media endeavors. She loves being creative and is passionate about polymer clay. Exploring possibilities and overcoming obstacles in the construction of a project are her favorite parts of the creative process. Her diverse experiences directly influence her artistic life where she developed a playful yet distinctive style and a strong curiosity that propels her to follow the 'what ifs' and try new things. She holds a firm belief that the act of creating something softens one's heart and opens one's mind. With this philosophy, she readily shares her creative techniques and teaches both locally and nationally. Never at a loss for inspiration, Lynn's past and current work can be found on her studio blog, Flying Squirrel Studio (www.theflyingsquirrelstudio.wordpress.com), as well as Instagram (@lynnyuhr). She also shares many of her polymer experiences, travel and other artistic endeavors on these platforms.
