LYNN ALDRICH was born in Bryan, Texas, but grew up “all over the map” in an Air Force family that was often transferred. Aldrich received a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from the University of North Carolina. After deciding to become a visual artist, she received a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts from Cal State, Northridge, and a Master of Fine Arts from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. She often employs wry humor in her work or uses banal or ephemeral strategies to acknowledge our impermanence and to hint at spiritual significance. Aldrich has exhibited widely in galleries and in such spaces as the Santa Monica Museum of Art and the San Francisco Art Institute. Her studio is in downtown Los Angeles, and she is an instructor at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA.
