After receiving her Diploma in Fine Arts from Okanagan College in 1985, Lynn took on various artistic occupations such as airbrush artist, sign painter and custom framer before making the decision in 2003 to stay home with her young children. This provided her with the opportunity to pursue a career in art. She now teaches art lessons and is always busy painting for exhibits and commissions.
Lynn has exhibited at the Smithers Art Gallery, the Terrace Art Gallery, and the Ruth Harvey Art Gallery at the Museum of Northern BC in Prince Rupert.
Lynn grew up in the Okanagan surrounded with browns and yellows. Her current obsession is experimenting with the feelings of mood and mystery that surround her on the north coast, a place infused with blue, green and grey. She finds so much inspiration in the north, from the stunning natural surroundings to the communities and personalities that grow and thrive here. Each time she picks up her paintbrush she is celebrating another facet of life in this magical place.
Lynn has been a dog trainer and for a number of years was involved in dog rescue where she fostered, rehabilitated and re-homed dogs who'd had a rough start in life. She usually has a houseful of pets and currently shares her home with a rescued Catahoula Leopard dog and two cats. Besides art and animals, she loves the outdoors and coffee.
