Today we’d like to introduce you to Lynn Bromenschenkel.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
Music, art, photography, and dance have always been passions of mine. I grew up on a dairy farm back in Minnesota, started playing electric guitar around age 13, and joined my first band at age 17, playing bass guitar.
Since then, I’ve been a bassist in several bands in Minnesota, along with starting my own 12-string acoustic solo project, “Erased in a Moment,” before moving to Arizona in 2010.
New to Arizona, I met many musicians by playing my solo music at various open mic nights. In search of a death metal band needing a bassist, I went to several shows and handed out recordings of my past bands.
Shortly after, I ended up jamming with a few different bands, and started playing underground shows. It wasn’t until I went to a Halloween party in 2011, that I met my current band, Unholy Monarch.
Since then, we’ve released a full-length album, played several shows around Arizona and done a few out of state tours. Currently, we are adding the finishing touches to another release due out this year.
Please tell us about your art.
Music and painting both relieve stress, bring happiness, and bring a new vision to conquer.
I enjoy creating music for people to have an escape and to have something to relate their emotions to. What inspires me is the feeling of a crowd of friends and strangers becoming together, all a part of something that you’ve created.
Art is a great way to explore new possibilities and is a huge part of my life.
I love to paint in oils and acrylics, along with a little bit of airbrushing. I’ve painted several portraits, visions I’ve had in dreams, kitties, and various requested art.
The satisfying part of painting to me is creating an image that comes alive on canvas. It is challenging and fascinating to be able to share a vision that was once only in my mind. I enjoy creating custom paintings for people that have a vision they want to share as well.
Photography is another form of capturing these “mind visions.” I’m a professional photographer, primarily focusing on architecture and capturing what many real estate agents are envisioning to market their properties. Whether I’m looking through a camera lens or flying over with a drone, I enjoy analyzing the possibilities and the challenges associated with getting the best shot.
What do you think is the biggest challenge facing artists today?
My biggest challenge is finding enough time for all of my projects. I’m constantly thinking of a new project before finishing the one I’m working on.
In general, finding a way to balance art, music, and life is challenging, but keeps life interesting.
