Lynda has been a Professional Artist for over 20 yrs.
She was fortunate to study Oils under Harold Cooper who founded the New Albany Arts Council in Ohio and studied under New York artists in Portraiture.
The artist has exhibited throughout Ontario and Ohio for many years in group and solo shows within her communities
and supports many Galleries, Artist's Associations and Ontario Parks.
The artist managed The Stratford Gallery in Ohio and also managed a gallery in London, Ontario when she moved back to Canada in 2001.
Lynda was hired by The City of Windsor Artist's Studio and helped with the revitalization project throughout the City, painting public outdoor murals with a group of artists.
She instinctively, knew this was going to be a life long career and study in life as well as her passion!
Lynda opened up her own business and created the 1st and longest Mural in the Town of Amherstburg along the waterside park at the navy yard.
As the artist was finishing this Mural, she was chosen to create a Mural for The Fort Malden Museum of the Rebellion of 1837. This mural was documented in the Windsor Star as a first of it's kind in 170 years in a Parliament Building. Described as a Labour of Love from members of parliament at the unveiling, the Windsor Star and in the local newspapers. Lynda worked with Designers out of Ottawa for this project and met with local dignataries to complete the project.
Lynda restored the murals in the Town of Essex and gave them a face lift! The artist loves working outdoors and meeting the local community, while
helping sustain our history, culture and beautify the spaces that encompass us!
The artist taught art classes in Essex and Leamington. She taught many students in group settings as well as one on one classes as needed to help students who required the individualism.
Commission Portrait work has been her focus for many years working from her current Studio in Central Chatham-Kent, Ontario Canada. Some of these commissions included a portrait of Tom Brady in the first year they won the Superbowl and Carey Price in the 100th anniversary year of the NHL.
Lynda painted a Tribute series to Tom Thomson for the 100th anniversary of his death and Canada's 150th Birthday in 2017.
The artist is currently working on a body of work for her Adventures in Algonquin Park series for their 125th anniversary in 2018. Working up to her goal to have 130 large wildlife oil painting studies done for their 130 yr anniversary!
The artist loves to go en plein air painting whenever she can! Travelling allows the artist to paint magnificent scenery and subjects on backroads or back in her studio!
The artist has a great rapport with many Galleries. Throughout her painting career she has had success with each and everyone of these Galleries. She continues to support them and other artists.
The artist is a member of several Art Associations, Galleries & Museums. She believes in supporting the arts and the community!
