Lynn Kahle is a mother of four and Cincinnati watercolor artist who has earned regional and national recognition for her artwork. She has achieved distinction as the proprietor of a nationally honored art gallery: Raymond Gallery at The Framery on Hyde Park Square, where she has successfully published her own works as fine lithographs, as well as represented other nationally honored artists, including Jim Borgman of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

She received her first degree from Purdue University's School of Liberal Arts with Distinguished Graduate Honors, and also studied painting, sculpture, and art history in Rome [Italy] through Loyola University. Her post-graduate work was completed at Xavier University, The University of Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky University, The Cincinnati Art Academy and Baker-Hunt Foundation.

In 1989 Lynn received the honor of Cincinnati's Business and Professional Woman of the Year from the Greater Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce and the Cincinnati Business and Professional Women. Her talent was further recognized with a First Place Marketing Award from the Professional Picture Framers Association, an international organization. Both her artistic eye and business savvy have made Lynn a household name in Cincinnati, earning her a spot to jury and judge the Hyde Park Art Show, as well an invitation to lead a discussion on collecting editorial cartooning at The Cincinnati Art Museum.

Presently Lynn is focusing her artistic energy on oil portraiture.
