How did you get started and then develop your career?
Lynn Dunbar Bayus: I was in advertising for 10 years and thought I’d go back to school and help people by being an art therapist. I enrolled to get my masters and took my first painting class and was enthralled. I ended up with a Masters in Social Work, and a love of painting.

What is the most interesting thing you have painted/sculpted and why?
Lynn Dunbar Bayus: My most interesting project was a label for Woodford Reserve Bourbon. I worked on project with Brown Forman, visiting, painting and photographing the distillery. I was challenged to turn a summer scene into a winter scene. Mission accomplished!
