I can’t help but marvel at how each experience, each relationship, and the love and passion for what I do has allowed me this oddly wonderful journey to circle back to this place I find myself now.
After studying art at Pratt Institute in New York, Lyn Hiner worked in the business world as the trade show manager for Performance Racing Industry. For nearly a decade, she enjoyed everything about the racing industry and learned the value of good business acumen. These early experiences helped shape the course of her career as she decided to become a professional artist.
In 2012, after a horrific incident led the artist to the hospital with 2nd & 3rd-degree burns, a year of surgeries and occupational therapy, Hiner was called back to art, a passion she enjoyed during her youth and early twenties.
The "Petals" collection, initially titled "Beauty from Ashes" became the artist’s ongoing conversation with God about the journey back from that difficult experience. In this journey, Hiner recognized there’s beauty to be found amid life's struggles.
After several years as a professional artist, Hiner has explored other works...other conversations in the form of abstractions and most recently, cars. In November 2017, she launched "Cars on Canvas" and "Petrol" collection at the SEMA Show Artwalk.
Hiner’s love for cars stems from childhood. Her father used to rebuild and race Porsches. The distinct sights, sounds and smells of that beautiful machine are embedded from those early memories.
Over the years, the artist’s work has been recognized internationally and she has exhibited at juried fine art shows, world class automotive concours and other distinguished events including:
Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, Audrain Newport Concours & Motor Week, ArtExpo San Diego, Beverly Hills Art Show, Global Auto Salon Riyadh Saudi Arabia, Kaaboo Del Mar, Mission Federal Artwalk San Diego, Laguna Beach Festival of Arts, La Jolla Art & Wine, La Jolla Concours D’elegance, RetroAuto Pebble Beach (Monterey Car Week), The Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel, Fountain Hills Art Festival, SEMA Show, Saratoga Automobile Museum and more.
