Lynell received her education from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design with a major in Illustration. Since that time, her illustrations have been published in games, books, album covers and magazines, and her work has been seen from time to time in Chicago area galleries and events. Last summer she provided a variant cover for issue #4 of Image Comics Mind the Gap. She currently resides in Chicago. Lynell finds that inspiration is everywhere, from the heroes and villains in everyday life, just waiting to be picked from the air, and waiting to tell many stories.
