Lynn Maderich returned to her first love several years after graduating from The Atelier when she applied her improved oil skills to her extensive knowledge of the horse. She now exhibits nationally at major equine events and has received awards from The American Academy of Equine Art and the Art Renewal Center. Lynn is an Associate member of The Society of Animal Artists. Her work has also appeared on the cover of Horses In Art magazine, appears in the AAEA 2009 calendar and is in demand for commissioned portraits. Some of Lynn's favorite paintings are those where she can depict the horse and person together.
