The road to Studio Barcelona has been a long and winding one. After working in corporate America for over 20 years in client services and project management, Lynita joined fellow artist Jessie Schroeder at her studio and shop, My Table Gallery in Muskego. They became the first Chalk Paint® stockists in Wisconsin in the fall of 2011, quickly outgrew the 400 square feet shop in Muskego and moved My Table Gallery to Hales Corners a year later. Jessie turned over the shop to Lynita in 2013 so that she could spend more time with her family and concentrate on her successful pottery business.
Following a desire to open a business in her Washington Heights neighborhood, Lynita opened Barcelona in the fall of 2013. Why the name Barcelona? “I find the city of Barcelona creatively inspiring and I wanted people to be creatively inspired when they came into my shop”.
