LYNDA LYNN, OSA, SCA

Lynda has spent a lifetime painting, and still, the landscape speaks to her soul. Using colour subjectively, she paints in an abstracted realism style that leans toward more nonrepresentational forms of expression, always striving to capture that elusive feeling that causes us to draw a breath of elation when we view that “something”.
