About the Artist

Lynda is basically self taught with an enthusiasm in believing in herself and her God given talent to share her artistic knowledge with others. She has a great understanding of the students that have difficulty learning, due to dyslexia and ocular dominance, expressing to them that perseverance believing in ones' self and passion, opportunities will be present. The words "I can't" and "not good enough" are not in her vocabulary. Her philosophy is when you say "I can't" a door is closed, at the least try and doors will open.
Lynda's career as an artist has included commissions, murals, juried shows and instructing classes for seniors, instruction for rehabilitation, instruction for art schools along with the Board of Education, Catholic and Public. Electives, P.D. Workshops and teaching to the curriculum, classes from Junior Kindergarten to grade 8 has been just some of her programs. Several of her adolescent students taught at her home studio have won numerous awards in local juried art shows and even been in the Robert Bateman children's calander.
Most importantly, Lynda makes learning fun!
