A lifelong fascination with colour, Lynda works in a wide range of mediums She has continued to study art all of her life, her first formal training being with noted landscape painter and friend, Robert Emerson Everett and then at the Ontario College of Art and Design, Georgian College, Nipissing University, and with various master artists. The world around her holds infinite curiosity and interest, and she finds the whole field of artistic expression fascinating. Art helps her to see both inner and outer worlds and is a form of language that speaks to the soul. In her paintings, she uses colour subjectively, trying to psychologically capture the intrinsic spirit of the subject. Art is a matter of perception, with its elements changing through both the eyes of the artist and with the viewer. Lynda’s work leans toward abstract realism and nonrepresentational abstract forms of expression. She likes to play and experiment with the challenge of light playing on colour, to combine all of the elements in a satisfying whole, hoping to stir the imagination of the viewer by involving them on a personal level through the use of their own imagination. Lynda was a founding director of the Muskoka School of the Arts where she focused on teaching the uses and expressionism of colour and colour theory. Lynda has given workshops for Central Ontario Art Association; Kingston Collegiate and Vocational Institute; Barrie Art Club; Georgian College; Gibson Centre for Arts and Culture, Alliston; Halifax, N.S. Art Group, Muskoka Arts and Crafts; Brown Baggers; and others. Lynda’s paintings hang in private and corporate collections internationally.
