About

MY NAME IS JEANETTE LYMAN AND I AM A DANISH-BORN ARTIST. HAVING LIVED IN COPENHAGEN, PARIS AND LONDON, MY INSPIRATION ORIGNATES FROM ALL OF THE PLACES LIFE HAS TAKEN ME TO.

I CREATE ART WITH A SHARP EDGE, PULLING IN SOCIETAL NORMS AND FLIPPING THEM ON END. I ASPIRE TO COMBINE PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH MEANINGFUL SOCIAL ISSUES INTO WORKS WITHOUT LOSING THE ART TO ITSELF TO THE SECULAR.

MY PRIMARY CANVAS IS TRADITIONAL, THOUGH I ALSO COMBINE PHOTOGRAPHY AND MIXED MEDIA TO FIND MEANING WHEN THESE CAN BRING DEEPER FEELING.

PLEASE ENJOY!
