Lynn is an Adelaide based artist who paints decorative landscapes and still life paintings. She borrows stylistically from what she sees around her, the geometric shapes of Adelaide’s rolling hills and coastal scrublands, the flattened planes of ancient dusty pink walkways and decorative patterning of intricate grass seeds and native shrubs.
” I moved to Adelaide from Ireland in 2014 with my husband and 3 teenagers. Nature is my place to escape and retreat to. Since settling here I now paint a specific place, an ancient land that I feel connected to, a Conservation Park in Hallett Cove and generally the southern Coastline of Adelaide. It’s a place of history, stories, worship and wonder.”
An avid researcher and maker, Lynn completed a BA (hons) Fine Art in Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology in 1999, Ireland and a Certificate in Art and Wellness from the University of Tasmania in 2014. She has continued her art practice of painting, printmaking and exhibiting over the last 20 years and facilitates art groups in the Aged Care Sector in her community. Her artwork is influenced by her favourite artists Angie Lewin, Paul Henry and Georgia O’Keeffe, artists who paint nature and capture it’s beauty in their own unique way.
Private collectors have bought and commissioned Lynn’s original acrylic, oil paintings and lino prints from Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Germany, Holland, Wales, the UK and the USA. Her Mid Mod style licensed artwork and designs have been listed across the USA and Europe online from Amazon to Wallmart and have proved popular with the Boho, plant loving community worldwide.
