Founding member of the Hornby Island Arts Council
While working as a ceramics instructor at UBC she completed her master’s thesis evaluating the benefits of incorporating art gallery resources into child art education programs. Turning to watercolour as her main medium, Lynne evolved her distinctive large format style to tell the story of her subjects. Lynne’s informative painting demonstrations have taken her around British Columbia and Australia and she spent time as ‘artist in residence’ at Van Dusen Gardens, teaching workshops, using the gardens as inspiration for her students.
Lynne’s work was chosen as one of many to represent Canadian artists in the World Conference on Women, Beijing, China and was then selected for the permanent collection of Women in the Arts, Washington DC. She has also shown in England, the USA, South Africa and Australia.
The support of her husband Andrew has enabled so many facets of her life. “I couldn’t have done it without him”, an adventurous life living and travelling around the world and so many times he has lifted paintings to hang art shows all over the world.
A long time Hornby artist and Arts Council organizer/supporter, Lynne is currently retired and living in Vancouver.
