Lynn Kopelke, Enumclaw, Washington
Lynn makes his home just outside of Enumclaw, Washington. In between seventeen years as a itinerant stage and commercial actor and twenty plus years in retail western wear, Lynn cowboyed in Eastern Washington. It left a mark. He started writing and performing cowboy poetry in the early parts of this century. When he found himself out of work in early 2013, he picked up his pencils and acrylics and has been trying to represent the American west on paper and canvas as best he can. Brandings, pack strings, TV, and movies with the west itself as the backdrop provide all the materials he needs. With pictures and words, he tries to share the west he lives in and love with as many people as he can. His thriving ragwart farm and car ranch lies five miles due north of the old pickle factory. If you're in the neighborhood, stop on by.
