LYN KILBOURN - OWNER/ SIGNER OF PAYCHECKS

Lyn has been painting pottery most of her life.  At age five, her mom took her to a traditional style ceramic studio.  Over the years she continued to paint pottery enjoying every minute.  After ten years working at a PYOP the opportunity presented itself to purchase the studio.  You can usually find her rearranging the shelves and tormenting anyone who is not a Pittsburgh Steelers fan.
