Lynell Ingram - Artist, Activist, Video Creator
Lynell Ingram is a Chicagoland watercolor and mixed-media artist who has come to believe that the best use of her artistic skills is to both inspire and open doors to discussions about humanity, mental health, and feminism. She received a BFA in Illustration from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design after which she worked for several years as a graphic artist. After years of working in design, she decided to make a change and reach out into the world with her own voice. Since then she has been teaching herself unconventional ways to paint with watercolors and exploring media that wasn’t taught with a design background. With a hope to spark joy and curiosity, lift important purposes, and add a little extra dose of color into the world, she is a media experimenter, a life-long learner, a believer in passion, and a bit of a creative madwoman.
Most recently, Lynell completed 'The Inspiration Project,' 100 portraits in 100 days. Click here to see and read about the full project.
