Lynn Floriano – Volunteer Spotlight

threeLynn Floriano is a working artist and educator. She exhibits her contemporary enamels and jewelry in the Chicago area. She has exhibited her work with the American Craft Council and the Chicago Merchandise Mart. Her work is currently traveling with The International Enamelist’s Society Exhibit “Alchemy.” Her work has been purchased by museum stores, corporations, and individuals and she has won numerous awards. Her work has been featured in Art Jewelry Magazine (January 2012, Gallery) and published in American Art Collector (Alcove Books).

Her love of color is easily satisfied by the medium of enameling. She incorporates in her pieces the techniques of limoge, cloisonné and grisaille enamels. She enjoys the rich surfaces, textures and depth she can achieve with enamels. She combines metals and enamels to make them do what may seem uncharacteristic; flow, bend, appear fragile, hold precious things. Her work is reminiscent of the elegant forms of nature, which is forever evolving and generating new inspiration.

Lynn teaches in the Art and Design Department at Columbia College, Chicago (adjunct faculty) and at College of Lake County in the Fine Arts Dept (adjunct faculty). She has also taught workshops at Columbia College/Chicago and Bowling Green State University, Ohio, where she received her M.A. and M.F.A.

Lynn’s time is limited with teaching, family and studio work but she enjoys volunteering when she can.
