Lynn’s cityscapes and landscapes show the influence of her textile background. Her use of gouache as the main medium combines with her love of colour and texture to create a unique style.

’I love creating paintings with quirky details and peopling them with characters to bring the pictures to life.’ Her work has been described as ‘peppered with tiny people like Lowry cross bred with Beryl Cook. Deliberately naïve and meticulously painted, they have a charm that is uplifting’

Lynn also produces prints, from her original paintings and undertakes commissions.
