Some biographical information:

Originally of Syracuse, New York, Lynette Abel grew up primarily in Alexandria, Virginia. After attending Miami-Dade Jr. College, and Florida State University, she moved to New York City where she worked for a time at a radio station, then for the NYC Dept.of Education, and later for the architectural firm, I.M. Pei & Partners.  Now a writer, her articles have appeared in newspapers and journals throughout the U.S. on many issues--including economics, road rage, and love.

     She began her formal study of Aesthetic Realism in consultations in 1972, and studied in classes with the American poet and historian, Eli Siegel from 1973-1978.  Her education continues now in professional classes taught by Ellen Reiss, who is the Class Chairman of Aesthetic Realism.  Recently, Ms. Abel appeared with the esteemed Aesthetic Realism Theatre Company in its production of songs and comment, "'Ethics Is a Force!'--Songs about Labor," which was first presented at the American Labor Museum/Botto House National Landmark as part of the Museum's May Day Festival.

     Other things to note: she loves music--classical, jazz, and rock.  She loves to sing, and to play the flute, an instrument she has studied for the past twenty-five years with musician and flutist, Barbara Allen.

She is married to Michael Palmer, radio news and sportswriter, and they live in the Village.
