Lynn's artistic skill has been shaped over the years by a range of influences, beginning with her grandfather, who offered his knee as the first easel for her sketchpad. From loving coaches such as this, through demanding instructors in commercial and fine art programs, she was encouraged to experiment with various mediums and discover her potential for creating unique work.

Lynn's influences have also come from some unusual places. Growing up in numerous Northern Ontario mining towns, offering extremely minimalist environments for inspiration - often surrounded only by rocky and barren landscapes - Lynn's eye for texture and ability to find inspiration within commonplace objects was honed. This continues to be evident in her work decades later. Lynn has experimented with many mediums over the years, most recently embracing the infinite possibilities of combining mixed media and acrylic.

“I aspire to expose the character and spirit of the subject matter – and attempt to bring a new insight and sensitivity to it. Ultimately, I strive to produce work that is unexpected, thoughtful and invigorating”.
