Lynne was born Toronto, 1950 and started painting at an early age. She studied commercial art at Central Technical School under Doris McCarthy before turning her attention to landscape painting. Many hundreds of hours were spent in the Northern Ontario forests researching, sketching, photographing and painting her subjects. A considerable amount of her childhood was also spent in Nova Scotia where she developed a love for the sea and the Maritime way of life.
Her paintings operate on many levels involving form, colour, and place. They aim to visibly document her thoughts and try to express her vision, pulling the viewer into another world. Lately, her artistic visions have taken on a more abstracted quality, experimenting with different media and allowing her to develop new ideas.
Her previous work was based on close studies of trees, their many textures, moods and the effects of the various seasons upon them. She developed a great love and respect for nature and painstakingly applied paint to canvas to capture a startling realism and a boldness of colour and texture. Her landscapes show the wonderfully varied beauty of the Canadian land. In addition to landscape painting.
