At the core of Lynette Ubel’s being is a painter. She knew from her earliest days that she was destined to be an artist, so she fostered her creativity in a multitude of mediums and eventually chose a career in graphic design.
Having received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Communications from The University of Kansas, Lynette worked for the first five years with two different Kansas City-based advertising agencies. Feeling the need for more creative freedom, she left the agency world in 1989 to form Ubel Design.
While Lynette’s 25+ year career has produced a versatile portfolio of award-winning photography and design, it is her calling as an abstract painter that is emerging in full, vibrant fashion today. Her artistic vision now manifests itself in contemporary abstract acrylic paintings that feature an explosive style of remarkable depth, motion, and fluidity. Every painting springs from her free flowing curiosity, taking viewers on an ever-evolving journey of color, texture, and exploration. The textured, layered, ambiguous forms in her paintings comprise a recognizable theme for people to see and interpret what they need to see in that moment in time.
Over the past six years, Lynette’s art has been shown in numerous galleries, a one-woman museum exhibition, and corporate offices. She is prolific and in her personal studio has developed an impressive body of work for galleries while continuing to explore various techniques with her painting mentor.
