Born in Toronto, Ontario Lynda found inspiration at the Canadian National Exhibition watching the street portrait artists at work. It was an amazing experience to see a face appear on a simple piece of paper.
Following her passion for art, she enrolled in the Fine Arts program at Humber College. She then went on to expand her knowledge of art at the Haliburton School of Art, Toronto School of Art, and Academy of Realist Art. For many years, Lynda attended life-drawing classes under the guidance of artist Neville Clark.
Her work has appeared in juried shows at the Latcham Gallery in Stouffville and the Frederick Horsman Varley Art Gallery of Markham. As part of the collective Painters6 she has shown her work at various galleries in Markham, Stouffville, Uxbridge, Ottawa and Toronto.
As a member of the Markham Group of Artists, Lynda produces works in oil, acrylic, pastel and charcoal. Lynda feels the painted portrait is a tangible, lasting impression of a person’s personality, a small speck of life captured forever by the artist but fully open to interpretation by the viewer.
