Lyn Belisle is an award-winning artist, teacher, designer and writer who has earned acclaim in a range of fine arts, humanities, English, and graphic design throughout her career.
As an undergraduate, Lyn studied art with Phillip John Evett and Bill Bristow at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. After completing her Master of Arts degree, she taught art, humanities, and technology in public school for 30 years, and was a finalist for Texas Teacher of the Year in 2001 for her work with at-risk students.
Her work in regional and national galleries and collections includes large-scale origami constructions, encaustic photocollages, mixed-media acrylic paintings, and earthenware. In January of 2103, she founded Lyn Belisle Studio where she is artist-in-residence and conducts numerous workshops on creativity and mixed media.
Lyn has had six one-person gallery exhibits since 2011, and recently retired from the faculty in the Computer Science Department at Trinity University to work full time at her Studio. Among her areas of expertise are digital media for artists and copyright/intellectual property issues. She has authored two articles for Cloth Paper Scissors magazine, an ebook on photoencaustic collage, and a coloring book on the folk art of Mexico.
Creativity runs in the family. She is the proud mother of best-selling author Rick Riordan whose books inspire millions of young readers.
Lyn is represented by La Vida Gallery in San Antonio, Studio C Gallery in Corpus Christi, and Dan Pfeiffer Gallery in Fredericksburg, Texas.
