Church Murals by Lyn Martin

These church wall murals were created by Lyn Martin for the Grace Episcopal Church in Chattanooga, TN. The Grace priest contacted Lyn for the project in order to make the entrance more welcoming while taking something from Genesis (the Creation) and honoring older parishioners that worked to have the church building raised. Part of the artwork that Lyn created was inspired by a prayer during a service about “the planets in their courses and our island home, this planet earth.” Lyn painted the walls on site using Benjamin Moore wall paint and traditional acrylics for the details. A different task for an artist accustomed to using canvas board and a computer – especially painting most of the time on scaffolding!!
