Born in Egypt and raised in Australia, art has always been part of Lynn’s life as she was surrounded by nature, beauty and artistic inspiration. Undoubtedly, this was a big reason why Lynn began to paint. However, after having travelled to Italy in the 80’s and seeing such inspiring paintings and beauty of the countryside, Lynn was left with vivid images in her mind. These visions have been interpreted and still appear through some of Lynn’s paintings.
Behind the joy of painting, Lynn spent years battling a chronic illness. Painting became a big part of her healing process as doctors instructed to use painting as a form of recovery. This condition drew Lynn to the world of the supernatural. Today, her work reflects the way she sees life with all of its color and beauty. From rich warm hues to cool tones, Lynn searches the unknown phenomenon and psychic of the human condition and explores the complexities of living. She taps into a truly unique style of curves, with the use of color in erratic, speedy, busy tumultuous ways. Through fine lines and outlines of curves, Lynn’s search of higher power in all his glory is what she is celebrated for.
The concept within Lynn’s work strongly reflects the connection between the human condition with the supernatural or spiritual. Her themes express mans search for meaning, search for god and the tragedy of living. The overriding theme is man being lost in the insanity of life only to find redemption and salvation. “Man is searching for meaning, searching for hope, searching for love, searching for significance in his perpetual state of confusion” says Lynn. Her art gives hope and rejoices the light in the dark.
