Gwynn received a Bachelor of Arts in Art Education from Temple University and Tyler School of Art. Upon graduating, she accepted a full‐time position teaching art in the Oxford Area School District while taking graduate courses in art at West Chester University. In 1993, Gwynn moved to Haddonfield, New Jersey and began teaching drawing at the Haddonfield Adult School, later adding a watercolor course. A few years later, she started the children’s Multi‐Media for Young Artist Program which has been continuously running multiple sessions three times annually for 15 years. From 2001‐07, she participated in the Art Goes to School initiative, a volunteer program that teaches art history to children.

Gwynn continued to develop her art. Several pieces were selected by the Haddonfield Tourism Committee to represent the town in a series of fourteen postcards, and some of these images were also published in print media and online. In 2001, Gwynn started a series of Jersey shore scenes. Limited edition prints of 12 (to date) are sold in shore galleries and stores. In 2002, Gwynn went back to school at the newly founded Studio Incamminati in Philadelphia where she studied drawing and painting for four years under the prominent portrait painter Nelson Shanks.

Over the past seven years since, Gwynn has continued to teach, adding additional classes. She remains an active artist, focusing on drawing in colored pencil, and painting in watercolor and oils. In late 2010, Gwynn began to enter exhibits and shows, and was honored to receive recognition as Best Artist from South Jersey Magazine in 2011. She has also promoted the work of her adult students by arranging art shows in local venues. In 2013, Gwynn became a member artist of the Home Fine Arts Gallery in Mt. Holly and was accepted as a Signature Member of the Philadelphia Water Color Society (PWCS).
