Mila Lynn is a Multidisciplinary Artist from the Lansing area. She has shown in London, Miami, Tampa, and Various Michigan Cities. She returned back to the states March 2020 just as the country was locking down and took the time to completely immerse herself in her practice. Her two favorite art forms are painting and collaging. After learning more about color theory, Mila likes to find ways to create vibrancy in her work by specifically choosing her colors. Her overall mission as an artist is to either inspire, educate, or uplift the people around her. As a young kid she was involved in the summer camps at REACH Studio Art Center. She then attended Pleasant View Magnet School as a middle schooler, and was heavily influenced to develop her skills by her Drawing teacher, Shirley Hazlett. At Everett High School, she lived for her time in Pamela Collins Art Elective. However, outside of early experiences she never received any formal training. Her best friend while overseas was accomplished abstract painter, Allan Storer, who doubled as a mentor in learning how to implement different techniques in to her work. Mila has been hyper-focused this year on art that empowers the Black Community and increases positive representation in art. During her launch of the Black is King project, a portion of print sales were used to purchase Black Children's Books and give out for free in her hometown of Lansing, Michigan.
