Lynn Mehta is a contemporary impressionist painter who receives her inspiration from the landscape. Born and raised in La Jolla, California, she now lives in Alexandria, Virginia.

Lynn obtained her B.A. in Art from San Diego State University and has taken classes and workshops through The Art League in Alexandria, Capitol Hill Art League in Washington, DC, Easton Studio and School, and Yellow Barn Studio in Maryland. Growing up she was influenced by the art of her mother who painted the Southern California landscape when Lynn was a young child.
