Lynda is a creative catalyst; an accomplished artist and teacher in a variety of media including bead weaving, chainmaille, calligraphy, handmade artist’s books and journals, and Repujado (metal embossing). She is a Juried Artist and active member of the Sonoran Arts League.

In 2005, Lynda was certified as a Repujado artist and teacher by MercArt USA. If you are unfamiliar with the art form, you are in for a treat! Repujado (pronounced ray-poo-ha-though) is the fine art of metal embossing.

For several years Lynda has taken her love for metal embossing and the paper arts "on the road". John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina quickly became one of her favorite places to teach and attend classes. Plans are in the works for 2020, please check back for dates and workshop information.

Locally, Lynda has taught and exhibited at ART Unraveled, an annual mixed-media art retreat held in Phoenix, Arizona as well as the Hidden in the Hills Artist Open Studio Tour, an annual event in Cave Creek, Arizona. You can visit her in November at Robin’s Nest Studio on Surrey Drive in Cave Creek - just off Cave Creek Road, north of Carefree Hwy.

Lynda teaches locally in North Scottsdale at the Holland Community Center, and occasional classes in Phoenix and Tucson. Check Lynda’s teaching schedule HERE.


“The art of REPUJADO is a meticulous labor of love. Also known as metal embossing or metal relief, and always crafted by hand, REPUJADO is the working of metal to give volume and relief to the decorative design engraved on the metal.”
