Born and raised in the Victorian Alps, Lyn was accustomed to surroundings of grandeur and discovered her love of painting early, gaining credits for art during her school days.
Lyn joined a professional arts group where "I learnt to improve my techniques" and with no formal training "found the long road of self experimentation, reading and observing what nature supplies, the best tools to produce a satisfying work."
A move to Queensland - Brisbane, Townsville and now north of Ingham introduced the colours of the reef, rain forest and the astounding variety of bird and wildlife. A lover of nature and with the infinite spectra of never-ending subjects now available, it was natural for Lyn to pick up her brushes again.
Winning several "Firsts" in Art Competitions over the years, prompted exhibitions with fellow artists, followed by 'going solo'. Consequently her paintings are now hung from Melbourne to Cairns and Europe.
More recent "Firsts" in 2006 & 2007 proved to be incentive to continue painting although as a more relaxed hobby.
