Lynelle Abel is a self-taught pressed flower artist. After retiring from her leadership position in the Patient Experience division at the Yale New Haven Healthcare System, Lynelle found herself searching for a new creative outlet that would combine her love of flowers and nature – with the ability to share these gifts with others. Lynelle works with a Microfleur press and has gained much inspiration from renowned botanical photographer, Ellen Hoverkamp. Lynelle creates large framed botanical prints and has been commissioned to design keepsake prints using flowers from meaningful life events (weddings, funerals, retirements, etc.).  Other work includes smaller glass frame prints, seasonal botanical pumpkins and note cards.

Lynelle resides in Madison with her husband and has two grown sons and a beautiful two-year-old granddaughter. Her work is currently exhibited at Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, Connecticut and she is a featured artist at Spectrum Gallery’s Summer Arts Festival on the Essex Town Green.
