Lynn MaderichIt is with great sadness that we must announce the passing of our friend, colleague and master painter Lynn Maderich. Though she has passed on, her works that she created still live on to inspire and amaze us at her ability to capture and transform her chosen subjects into images that were truly visionary. Images that transport us to a place of her choosing, her ability to capture light and combine the elements of the story, and a superior vision of composition, all come together to bring her paintings to life.

Lynn Maderich smiling with horseLynn was also a valued member of The Atelier Studio Program of Fine Art, she will be missed as an instructor and mentor to young and upcoming artists as well as those wishing to learn The Atelier method of creating fine art pieces, and they are many in number. She helped guide the growth and direction of The Atelier as a productive member and secretary on The Atelier Board of Directors.

We mourn the loss of our friend and the world has grown a bit dimmer with her passing, for she was truly a light that shone within the forest.

About the Artist

Lynn Maderich returned to her first love several years after graduating from The Atelier when she applied her improved oil skills to her extensive knowledge of the horse. She exhibited nationally at major equine events and has received awards from The American Academy of Equine Art and the Art Renewal Center. Lynn was an Associate member of The Society of Animal Artists. Her work has also appeared on the cover of Horses In Art magazine, appears in the AAEA 2009 calendar and was in demand for commissioned portraits. Some of Lynn's favorite paintings were those where she could depict the horse and person together.
