Biography

Lynn is an award-winning Scottish artist who expresses her innovative and thoughtful interpretations across a range of themes, figurative, portrait and landscape. She specialises in the medium of pastel which gives a vibrancy and luminous quality to her art. Lynn has a passion for colour and design, and for life, as can be seen throughout her work.


Lynn graduated from Gray’s School of Art, in Aberdeen, in 1979, choosing a career path in Graphic Design and Printmaking. After working as a designer on many major international brands, she set up her own successful design business in 1999.

In 2012 she felt herself drawn back to drawing and painting, which had been her first love. In the nine years since, her work has steadily gained recognition, with an expanding number of galleries stocking her art and many invitations to contribute to mixed and solo exhibitions. Working from her home studio in Stepps, Glasgow, she is delighted to be reaching an ever-growing audience.


Lynn is a strong believer that art is for everyone. She teaches part time at Strathclyde University on the Stage 1 Drawing and Painting, Life Drawing, Learn to Draw, iPad Art and Pastel classes. She also teaches regular classes at Bearsden Art Club.


She is regularly asked to do demonstrations for various art groups all over Scotland and beyond, most recently teaching pastel workshops in France and The Netherlands.


Lynn is an elected member of Glasgow Art Club, Paisley Art Institute and Glasgow Society of Women Artists and is a Signature Member of the Pastel Guild of Europe and Associate Member of the Pastel Society of America.


Her works are collected by international art collectors as far afield as Australia, Bermuda, USA, Canada, Israel, Germany, France, India and The Netherlands.
