On today’s episode, Leta continues to explain the differences between an Interior Designer and an Interior Decorator, and local Atlanta artist Lynne McDonald joins Leta in the studio to discuss her artwork and charitable support.
Lynne McDonald/Lynne McDonald’s Gallery
Lynne McDonald is an award winning, juried artist. She grew up in California, but moved to Atlanta from Montreal, Canada and started painting full-time in 2012. Since then, her skills have evolved and now you can find her work in galleries, stores, hotels, offices and private collections internationally. Her inspiration comes from nature and her travels. She considers herself curious and thinks of each painting as an experiment. “I prefer painting in abstracts, because I like the participation of the observer. It always amazes me what other people see in my work. I learn just as much about them as they do me.”
Lynne became a Type 1 Diabetic as a teenager and has been on insulin for 30 years now. The cruel irony is that she’s developed Retinopathy that affects her vision. She describes it as having little blind spots that make it difficult to see an entire piece. She also has difficulty seeing in low lights so she requires flood lights in her studio and has problems seeing colors properly. Because of her struggles she mentors children with Type 1 Diabetes. “Being a role model for these kids inspires me to take good care of myself. They are watching me and my attitude shapes how they see themselves.”
