Picture of Lynne Millman-Weidinger

Born 1953 in North Adams, Massachusetts.

Lynne was born with a special love for nature. She was a tom-boy who spent more time exploring the woods of western Massachusetts and catching wild animals than cultivating her feminine attributes. With three older brothers she excelled at demonstrating her independence and proving that she was not a whit behind them in setting a bold course for her life. Lynne inherited a talent for art from her parents which was further fostered by mentoring from brother Dean who showed her that painting is one of the noblest pursuits. She knew from a very early age that she wanted to become a successful artist.

At the age of eight Lynne moved with her family to Utah. A few years later she moved again to Carson City, Nevada where she attended high school and a year at the University of Nevada – Reno. In 1973 a terrible car accident left her seriously injured. Her miraculous survival and eventual recovery transformed her tepid faith into a burning testimony of the Savior. After serving an LDS mission to Colorado Springs, Colorado Lynne attended Brigham Young University where she studied art under William Whitaker and other outstanding instructors.

Lynne quickly established her reputation as a painter who can master any medium. Her early works were done primarily in acrylic. Her attention to detail and realism make her paintings indistinguishable from color photographs. As Lynne moved more into oils she studied under Frank Covino and learned the techniques of the Renaissance masters. By first applying a gray undercoating to her portraits and then applying layers of color the paintings attain a three-dimensional quality.

For several years Lynne has given a weekly art class in Provo, Utah. She lives in Santaquin, Utah with her husband Don Weidinger and three daughters. She is a devoted mother who likes living in the country with her farm animals and fruit trees.
