Alumni Success: Fine Arts Education Fuels Creative Life For LynnMontes
Lynn Montes '71 taps into her artistic sensibilities regularly in both her professional and personal life. As a bathroom designer, she facilitates redesign and installation projects for Elegant Bath & Kitchen Shoppe in Pleasantville, NJ. Her creative life outside the store includes fabric weaving, photography, painting and more.

Montes credits MCCC with being a springboard for her spirited life and providing her a well-rounded educational experience. "Who would have thought that a non-Euclidian geometry course that I took at Mercer would help me in wrapping my loom today?" she said. "Mercer professors gave me the key to unlock the door to a lifetime of endless possibilities." More here.
