Lynn Basa

Lynn Basa grew up in the country outside of Bloomington, Indiana and has been creating art since the age of 6. Beginning her formal art training in the 7th grade, Lynn discovered working with ceramics. She credits a middle school teacher with cultivating her inner artist during this time. Basa continued studying ceramics throughout her high school career and eventually majored in it at Indiana University. Shortly after graduation, Basa moved to Seattle where she began a 22 year long career as a curator. This allowed her to learn the business side of art while she developed her artwork as well as her portfolio.

From the age of 15, Basa began exploring clay and fiber creating textiles that resembled paintings. These interests lead her into the arena of public art where she could express herself in a much wider array of materials including glass mosaic, terrazzo, and metal. Around 2000, Lynn focused her creativity on the painting. Her influences include organic, natural forms or accidental textures and shapes. There is a quality to her work that ‘is so rooted in naturally-occurring forms that anyone who has ever been fascinated by geological strata, the complex beauty of a rust stain, or the random arrangement of raindrops on a window pane’ will respond to her work. She strives to capture the force of nature in her encaustic paintings.

Basa now lives in Chicago where she is a professor of Sculpture at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is a published author.
