"Whimsical and fun mosaics made from recycled paper, which is both original and affordable!"
Flynn has been making her recycled paper mosaics on canvas since 1999, having originally started out her art career as an illustrator and graphic designer. Many years of creating traditional tile mosaics prepared her for working in a similar way, but using a paper product, in this case, recycled magazine advertisements. Most of Flynn's work has been in galleries and gift shops along the East...
... Coast, and as of 2014, Flynn has been almost exclusively showing in outdoor/indoor festivals in the Southeast region. "Showing in the art festivals has allowed me to share my art with so many more people, and that's one of the things I absolutely love about what I do for a living," remarked Flynn. Awards are not something she actively seeks, but Flynn has been the recipient of many awards, among them several Awards of Merit, and her favorite, the Recycled Content Award from the prestigious LeMoyne Art Festival in Tallahassee, Florida. "Recycled art is where my heart is, so this award really thrilled me," she said. Flynn also has a life-size fiberglass horse covered in found object and broken tile mosaic, standing in the Appleton Museum of Art in Ocala, Florida, and is tickled to drive her art van to shows, which is also covered in tiles, still a work in progress. In 2018, Flynn is reaching out via more companies that provide an alternative marketplace other than traditional brick-and-morter stores, and ArtZipper is one of them. "ArtZipper sent me a brochure, reaching out to see if we may be a fit, and I think we might be," said Flynn. "I will certainly continue to market through my own website, and I'm a die-hard art gypsy so I will continue to do festivals, but if this is another way to present my work to people and businesses, I'm going for it!"
