Lynne Deptula

Lynne Deptula loved decorative painting the first time she took a class in 1981! She painted a strokework design from a Millie Smith book at her local craft store, and my how the flow of a stroke enthralled her. Shortly thereafter she attended a West Michigan Decorative Artist's chapter meeting where she was introduced to the teacher, Judy Diephouse. Classes with Judy followed, which blossomed into a lifelong friendship and the business partnership, Distinctive Brushstrokes. Many years have flown by, over 35 books have been published along with countless magazine and pattern packet projects. Lynne has been a member of West Michigan Decorative Artists and the Society of Decorative Painters since 1981.
Lynne lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan with her husband Frank. They have one lovely daughter; Anne, and a great Son-In-Law; Matt. Visit Lynne's website,, to view her latest patterns and books, check out her travel teaching schedule and download a free pattern. Contact Lynne directly at
