Lynda Payton

Lynda Payton is an artist who creates work in her own trademarked medium, trans photo digital artistry.™ Her abstract portraiture and graphic works employ traditional photographic media paired with layered digital files of photograph captures, vector art (or 3D rendered imagery).

Payton feels that an artist’s responsibility is to be a reflection of society. That is why, her work provokes viewers to draw from their memories--a place, time, or moment from which they can connect. A native of Chicago, Payton currently resides in Maryland.

Public Reception: Sunday, October 10, 2015 6-7:30 pm.
