Lynette Ubel, A Look Back
As a child Lynette knew she would be an artist, visualizing herself as a painter or illustrator. She selected classes throughout her schooling fostering creativity and introducing her to various mediums including photography. Lynette attended the School of Fine Arts at the University of Kansas. A freshman advisor, who saw Lynette's broad artistic talents, suggested she keep her hands in the fine arts by selecting elective classes such as photography, illustration and painting, but to work toward a future in graphic design. Following that advice, Lynette received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Communications, which would launch her into the professional world of advertising design.
After graduation Lynette worked with two different Kansas City based advertising agencies and then formed Ubel Design as Creative Director/Owner. She has art-directed hundreds of photo shoots with commercial photographers in conjunction with the advertising work her company creates. These photographers have been friends and valued mentors to her fine art photography. With almost daily exposure to selection and use of photography, Lynette challenges herself to capture the beauty she observes with an artistic, yet critical, eye. She sees learning as an infinite process and is enormously grateful for opportunities to share her perspective of our world through art.
