Welcome to Art By Lytha!

Join me past, present and future on my artistic journey!  Visit the pages of my “Classes”,  consider “Custom Art” and  browse the “Portfolio” of much of my work 

The exhilaration of creating large scale acrylic paintings that are colorful, loose and lively is simply addictive! I lose myself in the process. Many images are rendered in a spontaneous, impressionistic way, often revealing an inherent rhythm. Others have a more realistic touch. Sources of inspiration include places I have seen during my travels and experiences I have had with the people I have met. I have a true appreciation for the beauty that can be found almost anywhere. My particular interests are color, patterns and rhythm, which can be found in both my African pieces and the water-related ones. I feel so fortunate to be able to express my appreciation for life, people and experiences through art. My enjoyment in teaching is helping students to find creativity in themselves.
