Kathy Lynn Photography will be the photographer for our last Vendor Social of 2015!
Kathy Lynn is a photographer in Montgomery County, Maryland. Her delicate flower images were featured on our blog a few months ago – in addition to being featured in several gallery shows, exhibits, and won awards. You’ll remember her stunning images because they look like they may have been the inspiration for Georgia O’Keeffe’s famous paintings!
We had a chance to interview Kathy Lynn and learn about how she began creating these stunning images
What sparked your interest in photography?
I work at a family owned flower farm in the agricultural reserve in Laytonsville, Maryland. I am surrounded by so much beauty not only in the flowers, but also in the ever-changing colors and lighting in the gardens. I brought my camera to work with me one day and fell in love with taking photos of flowers! Some of my best shots are taken with my point and shoot camera!
You seem very connected to the community. Has that impacted your artwork?
My classroom is the flower farm. I have the opportunity to spend hours in the fields with the flowers. My photography is mostly of flowers from farms in Maryland and also vegetables from farmers markets in Maryland, Delaware, and Washington DC. I try to shoot only pictures of flowers that are locally grown. I photograph flowers, foliage, grasses, fruits, berries, vegetables and insects to create my signature close-up photographs.
Your flower photography should be on display! Has your work been exhibited?
My photography is on exhibit at the Sandy Spring Museum in Sandy Spring, Maryland, and has been on display at the Club House at Gibson Island and St. Michael’s. Kathy Lynn Photography was selected for the Visitor’s Choice award, 2013 Peony Contest, from the Gaithersburg Museum located in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
Kathy Lynn Photography has photographed many special events for the Sandy Spring Museum.
