At the core of Lynette Ubel’s being is a painter. She knew from her earliest days that she was destined to be an artist, so she fostered her creativity in a multitude of mediums and eventually chose a career in graphic design.
Having received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Communications from The University of Kansas, Lynette worked for the first five years with two different Kansas City-based advertising agencies. Feeling the “artrepreneurial” tug and a need for more creative freedom, she left the agency world in 1989 to form Ubel Design known today as Ubel Arts, LLC.
While Lynette’s 30+ year career has produced a versatile portfolio of award-winning photography and design, it is her calling as an abstract painter that is emerging in full, vibrant fashion today. Her artistic vision now manifests itself in contemporary abstract acrylic and mixed media paintings that feature an expressive style with remarkable depth, motion, and energy.
"My art is a personal diary of color, form and texture that gives insight to the world as I see and reflect it. I have been gifted with the ability to translate energy and feeling into art that radiates back to the viewer. My work is guided by intuition and emotion, so the color and content of each piece feels as unique as the day on which it was created. The immediacy, freshness and complexity of abstract acrylic and watercolor has always spoken to me. I paint in an Abstract Expressionist style. For me this means nothing but the color pallette is planned beforehand, and paintings develop in a spontaneous and physical way. I strive for my work to radiate energy that draws viewers in. One collector says, “I don’t know where Lynette’s art is taking me, but I love going along for the visual ride.
