Lynda’s foray into art began age 6 in a New Zealand city classroom – every Christmas for many years, she was excused for the afternoon to paint Christmas scenes with Santa and the Reindeer on all the classroom windows – a huge honour.
After a long career in the commercial world, studying porcelain art, and writing with the Writer’s Centre in Sydney for several years, she returned to art in 2004 when she moved to Redcliffe Peninsula. She stumbled upon John Carr’s introduction class at the gallery and so began her journey into watercolour.
Since that time she has continued on with John and attended the many workshops of Cheryl Nugent, Barry Kidd, Graham W Smith, Tricia Reust, Pete Pinza, Rex Backhouse Smith and NZ artist Tony Milner. She finally has works that she is proud to exhibit, colleagues she enjoys working with and she is always on the grand learning curve.
The images created by watercolour hitting a fresh white sheet of paper still excite her.
