Lyn Godley began her career in fine arts, then spent the next 20 years bringing form and beauty to functional objects. Her work has crossed the borders of large scale public art, interiors, product, furniture, lighting, jewelry, and fine art. The Crinkle Lamp, the last piece designed jointly by Lyn Godley and the late Lloyd Schwan, is in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art. Her work is also in numerous public and private collections, has won numerous awards, and has been reviewed in major international publications. She has focused on lighting for the last two decades, from residential chandeliers to large scale public installations. It was through lighting that she found her way back to art, in the form of drawings threaded with fiber optics. It has been this body of work, merging digital printing, drawing, and fiber optics that she has concentrated on since 2009. She currently teaches at Philadelphia University in Philadelphia where she lives and runs her studio.
