Lynette Johnson

Lynette, Seattle photographer and founder of Soulumination, has had creativity coming out of her hair since childhood. Besides photography, her passions range from knitting and wreath making to mail art and mushroom gathering. Currently, her love of beads and recycling has led her to create winged bead people attired in upcycled aluminum cans.  Many of her bead people are inspired by the Catrina Day of the Dead icon and are sporting wings, jaunty hats and skirts. Lynette also makes festive lights and wreaths from upcycled aluminum and one-of-a-kind luminarias inspired by Mexican tin art.

Friends and families graciously share their tin and aluminum recycling. Lynette and friends have collected items for use in her art in Japan, Italy, Bali, Mexico, Australia and around the Northwest.
