Lynn Tomlinson: Digital Culture & Animation
Lynn Tomlinson is an artist working in a wide range of media including animation, documentary, sculpture, mosaic, and community-based and public art. Her animation has been screened in international festivals and has aired on children's public television, MTV and Sesame Street. Grants and awards for her work include Media Arts fellowships from the states of Florida and Pennsylvania and Mid-Atlantic Emmy Awards. Her ongoing projects and research push the boundaries between animation and other media and focus on environmental change, metamorphosis and transformation, and states of subjectivity. She leads workshops that use animation and technology to engage and empower students, particularly girls and young women. She holds degrees from Cornell University (BA, English), the University of the Arts (MA, Art Education) and from the Annenberg School at the University of Pennsylvania (MA, Communication). She currently teaches at Towson University in Maryland, where she is also an MFA candidate. She was a member of the faculty at the University of the Arts for a decade, and has taught at the Maryland Institute College of Art, Delaware College of Art and Design, Stockton State College, University of Maryland Baltimore County, and Cornell University.
