Art has been with Lynda since high school. She studied briefly at OCAD in Toronto before following careers in health care and education.
Twenty-five years ago, Lynda created a home studio. It has vertical space, white walls and soft northern light. She spends hours there combining bright colours, interesting shapes and strong values for impressionistic works, mostly landscapes, sometimes abstracts, always in water media.
Lynda always starts a painting with the principles of design, colour and value in mind. This is the theoretical, conscious stage. From there her intuition takes over and the hours pass. For Lynda, painting is an emotional, passionate and very personal journey. Her style changes as she does.
She brings all the aspects of her past and present lives into my painting. She’s trekked to Everest Base Camp and flown aircraft. Perhaps, the hills, mountains and skies of her canvases originate from the open air of these experiences.
Lynda brings a love of learning and literature and many years of travel to my work. She now lives in Caledon, Ontario with her husband, Bob. She knows that her three children and six grandchildren are part of the images that emerge on her canvasses.
