About Loretta Lynn

Loretta Lynn is a self taught fiber artist creating non-traditional embroideries and wearable art. Her unique visual language often integrates her Catholic upbringing with her current practices of paganism using imagery from nature and the divine. Born in New York, Loretta performed as a dancer, performance artist, and garage-punk guitarist throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the State University of New York at New Paltz with a double major in Dance and Psychology and a minor in Philosophy. She received her Master’s Degree in Dance Movement Therapy from Pratt Institute. She currently works as a Dance Therapist in Special Education. During a challenging time, Loretta learned how to knit from a four year old at a karate dojo, which she found kept her present & focused. She expanded her fiber practice to include drawing with embroidery floss and incorporating eco-dyed fabrics, created with encouragement from her friend and mentor, Aaron Sanders Head. Loretta has shown work at the Tuscaloosa Art Center’s annual 8x8 shows, group shows at Kentuck Art Center, Aaron Sanders Head Studio, the Jessie Lavon and Friends Folk Art Gatherings, Magnolia Grove, and at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery in the Puck Building (NYC). She co-curated the April 2023 Wellness Walls for Art show at University Medical Center. This is her first solo show. Loretta lives in Tuscaloosa with her husband, Christopher, a Professor of Anthropology at the University of Alabama, is the mother of triplet sons Jagger, Bailey, and Lux,and has 4 dogs.
