Lynda is primarily, a self-taught artist who has had the pleasure of having studied internationally in the U.S. and here in Canada her home Country.
Lynda's background and focus is in Oils. Lynda has been a Professional Artist, now over 15 years. Working mainly with Commissioned based art. Lynda is comfortable using different mediums, whatever suits the subject and often uses mixed-media.
Lynda has recently completed a Tribute to Tom Thomson for the 100th Anniversary of his death and Canada's 150th Birthday. Two great Milestones to acknowledge.
The research and painting for this Tribute has inspired Lynda and she is working on New paintings and enjoying the process of creating her own Unique Voice.
Lynda has recently finished paintings for the Fall Art Exhibit at Algonquin Park with her new association with the E.C.O.A.A. the exhibit is currently underway and Lynda has sold two out of the three she entered.
Lynda loves painting her favourite places, animals and people doing what they love to do!
She enjoys painting en plein air, creating quick sketches to capture the moment and expression and sometimes taking them back to the studio to play and then taking the work back outdoors to catch that feeling again, whether it be the wind, the sun or even the tones, she want to capture.
Lynda paints on large canvases or diebond panels, in or out of the Studio.
This is from years of painting public murals for cities and townships.
But she is working on incorporating her smaller sketches with her larger studies of work. Should be interesting once these paintings are completed and could very well be part of her Unique Voice.
Using colour theory, design and the atmosphere, Lynda wants to take you on a journey, with her that you will truly enjoy!
Lynda's style is a cross between Picturesque - Painterly - Impressionism. She is known for her use of colours, techniques, especially with liquids, form and design. The feeling Lynda provokes to the viewer is stunning and when most walk up to an original Lynda knows she's done her job when she hears that, Wow!
Lynda will generally will work until she hears that! Wow factor! Knowing she has done her job!
By knowing her subjects and exemplifying them Lynda creates an instant bond between the viewer and the painting. Lynda feels her work is not finished until it reaches the viewer and then their story begins with it!
Lynda's work has been published in Artist magazines, Newspaper articles and her Paintings have homes in Private, Corporate and Government collections.
Lynda's decision to become a member of the Eastern Central Ontario Artist Association will allow her to surround herself with her colleagues and peers. Artist's Lynda has grown fond of and loves their work. This will also allow Lynda to get even more immersed in her art career and challenge herself even more.
Lynda supports art events and will be exhibiting at selected events throughout the coming years.
Lynda supports the art community and some of the proceeds of her works goes to helping sustain Algonquin Park and Artist Associations.
Lynda feels strongly about giving back where she can. She has had so many wonderful Artist's, Friends, Family help her along her path and they continue too!
