Bartholomew Lynch


Bartholomew Lynch (American, b.1972- )

Born in Walnut Creek, CA USA.

Born outside of San Francisco in Walnut Creek, in the same year and the with same name as the mass transit system in the bay, I moved with family before the fist year, yet am amazed to return to that area and find absolute comfort with the colors. I spent the next 15 years, formative as they were, in Stone Mountain, Georgia. That big hump of granite continues to grow as I age. Erosion at it’s base outpaces it’s upward transformation to sand. The next 15 years were spent in the greater Phoenix area, which is greater now than then. Dense and sprawling, development spreads across the farm land which replaced desert land in the valley once dams were in place to harvest and control the water. A walkabout brought me to Seattle where hills and water meet to nurture amazing life, and I met Crisha Yantis, my wife. We moved to Athens, GA and continued our education - mine in the painting and drawing Masters program, and Crisha completed her Undergraduate degree in ceramics. We bought a house got some chickens and ejoyed the time living in the south with songs floating in the underbrush. Crisha's education brought us to Linoln, NE, our current location.
