About Lynne Heffner Ferrante

Mark Twain said, "Forgiveness is the fragrance the violet sheds on the heel that crushed it." Forgiveness, however, is a complex matter, whether you are the one seeking forgiveness or the party who considers himself to be aggrieved. In the realm of family relationships made more complicated by human failing and life's happenstances, forgiveness may not be a realistic or attainable goal. How does all of this impact the lives of the people involved? I grew up in the Bronx and Forest Hills, New York in the forties and fifties. I am the mother of seven grown children and a total of thirteen grandchildren and have been married three times, the last one is a keeper. I have been an artist for over fifty years, have owned schools and art galleries in the Hamptons, a gold coast area at the tip of Long Island- I have been president of the Southampton Artists' Association, Vice President of the Jimmy Ernst Alliance before it became the Artists' Alliance of East Hampton, was editor of both the SAA and AAEH newsletters. I have studied law, been a paralegal, an advocate, an activist. I have exhibited and sold my artwork internationally and have spent the last little while completing my autobiography. Presently I live with my husband and three rescue dogs in the middle of North West Woods, East Hampton, New York, where I enjoy my garden and working on new art projects in my studio. For as long as I can recall I have been an artist. I received all manner of instruction since I was a child, from the MOMA to The Art Student's League to Pratt Institute, and plenty of private lessons in between. But my avocation always was writing, maybe because my parents both wrote and my mother was an English teacher in the New York City School system. The years have been filled with a mad variety of events- it has been a long eventful journey. Here's the thing. In the midst of my lifetime full of the creation of art and homes and gardens, there were other things, traumatic and joyful, mostly monumental, that occurred. Originally, I kept journals as a record of events. Ultimately these journals morphed into a memoir and then an autobiography. It became so long and complex that I was forced to divide it into three then four separate books. And here they are, all four of them, available for you to read.
