Hi, I’m Lynette Hensley, also known as the Flying Redhead.
You will find both whimsy and depth in my art, and currently a high degree of experimentation in what and how I paint and collage. Right now I’m experimenting with some non-representational art, and highly stylized whimsical treats. I am also committed to spending time practicing my drawing, and some of those drawings have made their way onto little cubes of art and a variety of other items.
As a former costume designer I’m very interested in the human being, human interactions, and their meaningful or humorous stories. With that as a backdrop, I’m also enjoying playing with materials and surfaces, and trying to spend all my studio time working quickly and playfully. I’ve headed back to the basics like composition, line, value, etc to inform new work. I’m learning more about what paint can do. I’m making my own printed paper for collages and cutting my own stamps and devices for printing patterns and images. I tend to work in series, and will use these images and printed patterns for building up a painting series or collage series.
I hope you can tell I’m having fun! I’m so glad to share my fun with you!
