Angie Lynn's Profile

About

You are invited to enjoy a niche in the arts that is a refreshingly different style of graphic design over photography.
The design subjects are primarily First Nations/Native American and most can be made to complement the color scheme of your home, office, or store to give that "WOW" factor. Angelynn (Angie) is eager to discuss options; however, she speaks only English.
FYI: She stumbled onto this art form about seven years ago due to the funding needs of the photo gifting program. Money from the sales of her art helps to continue the gifting of photos on 8.5” by 11” archival, quality paper to the First Nation subjects in them, and often their tribe or band as well.
Angie and her now deceased husband, Kenneth Michael Lynn started the program about eleven years ago when cameras where far less available. Angie gave a jingle dancer at Chief Seattle Days a few photos. After…

Angie and her now deceased husband, Kenneth Michael Lynn started the program about eleven years ago when cameras where far less available. Angie gave a jingle dancer at Chief Seattle Days a few photos. After being told that the young woman didn't have any pictures of herself dancing, Angie learned that there was a need to fill, and began to help by documenting events while continuing to gift photos to participants and attendees.
Soon gifting included artist at work, "Totem raisings", weddings, birthdays, naming ceremonies, funerals, memorials, and of course - the annual Canoe Journey, and Walk for Autism!
Today, thousands of photos and participants later, at the age of sixty this spunky grandma has been blessed with friendships up and down the west coast of the United states, Canada, and elsewhere. She has been honored for her work among the tribes and bands, and earned trust and respect.
Among her favorite memories are the times spent in the carving shed documenting the talent of the S'Klallam men of Little Boston, and the memories made on the coast with the kind people of the Quileute, and the Smelt People of the Hoh River in Washington State, where some of the people call her, "Picture Lady" or, "White Woman With A Camera.”
Not to be left off the list is the incredibly serial time spent with her friends among the Heiltsuk Band in the small village of Bella Bella on Campbell Island, which is off the coast of British Columbia, Canada, and a half hour's flight north of Vancouver Island. Angelynn was deeply moved during the raising of the Library's forty foot totem chiseled out over a three years by master carver, Larry Campbell, and is honored and thankful to have been present. She knows the event and following potlatch was an event seldom witness by "non-tribals."
If you have a project for Angelynn she would like to hear from you.
