About Lynn Kershner

Lynn Kershner has studied at the University of Southern California at Los Angeles, the University of Colorado at Boulder, and Regis University in Denver. Additional study and training in oil painting restoration took place as she worked with her mother, the classically-trained portrait artist Dorothy “Dot” Startzman.

After years as a high school art instructor in the Vail, Colorado, area, Lynn now resides in the Upstate of South Carolina, near Clemson University, and devotes her talents exclusively to the restoration of oil paintings and her own art.
