Lynn was Born in 1964 in Leigh-on-sea Essex, the family moving to Sussex in 1976 where I am still resident. From 1983 I studied at Wimbledon School of Art, graduating in 1986 with a BA (hons) degree in fine Art.

For ten years after graduating (1986-1996) I was a full-time freelance Artist and illustrator, painting numerous and varied commissions and drawing illustrations for two canine books. During this time I was also fortunate to be involved in several group exhibitions in Sussex and sold work both non-figurative, figurative and miniature landscapes.

My paintings have always had an emphasis on the exploration of colour and were, until some six years ago, the primary objective of my work through a non-figurative (constructivist) format. I was unsatisfied with the way this work was going as the intention behind the work was becoming lost, and made a decision to revert back to a figurative format.

At the age of 12 I produced my very first painting which was of a puffin on a cliff. I also remember sketching the sparrows in the garden which where my first attempt at drawing from life. It seems ironic that at a crossroads with my work I am drawn back to these creative roots. I have been a keen bird watcher for a number of years and has been the main focus of my photographic work. Through both the photographs and the paintings and pastels I try to explore not only the character of the bird but also a suggested narrative, a captured moment in time.

All Oil on Canvas Paintings are produced on a good quality cotton duck canvas and are hand stretched and primed by the artist
