Lynda Lynn



Both the visual and the intangible elements of her paintings are a language that speaks from the soul. Her love of the Canadian landscape offers ever changing inspiration for her abstracted images.


Lynda’s unique abstracted realism style encourages the viewer to connect to the art through the use their own imagination and interpretation.


Working in a wide range of mediums, Lynda has continued to study art all of her life, being introduced to painting by noted Muskoka landscape painter, Robert Emerson Everett; attending the Ontario College of Art and Design, Georgian College, Nipissing University, Fleming College, and workshops with numerous master artists.


She was a founding director and an instructor at the Muskoka School of the Arts, an elected member of the Society of
Canadian Artists, Ontario Society of Artists, and of the Arts and Letters Club of Toronto.


How to mix and use colour is a passion, allowing her to share her knowledge at various workshops throughout Canada.


Lynda’s paintings hang in private and corporate collections including the following - Canada (Industry Canada), USA (Citybank, NY), United Kingdom (University of Birmingham), New Zealand (Air Rider Hovercraft), and Norway (Municipality of Gol).


Variety is the spice of life, so it is said. Lynda loves the challenge of different types of subject matter while playing with myriad of mediums and implements. She focuses on glowing, light filled,
Abstracted Landscape and on Non Objective painting, where nebulous thought transcends reality.


Lynda likes to engage the viewer by leaving something for their imagination to complete. “The excitement of the creative process starts for me by trying to understand what I feel about a
subject and why.”


This led to the challenge of collaborative painting with Pam Turner-Wong, both painting at the same time, over and around each other, creating a look and feel that belongs to another entity altogether.

Sketching is Lynda’s greatest tool for understanding. She sketches quickly, making notations, while observing and drawing away until understanding the essence of the subject. Swishing away with big brushes, rubbing with rags, scraping with knives;
becoming a part of a totally new event, she refers less and less to the early sketches, needing to look at the work itself, to feel, evaluate, chase a line, silence an edge, drown a patch colour, thicken the textures, slow down, pull away. Exciting ideas for future exploration pop into her head. “Often, I feel as if I am a spectator just watching what is going on.”


The final painting phase slows down. It is long and reflective, dangerously close to doubt. It’s time to put the brush down and think about getting started on the next painting.
