Muskoka runs deep in Lynda’s soul
With her studio located in Bracebridge, Lynda is a fifth generation Muskokan, her family received land grants from the Crown in the mid 1800’s and have been located in the region ever since.
She attributes her love and fascination with light and colour to both her grandmother and mother, who made beautiful quilts and nurtured summer gardens full of luscious texture and vibrant hues. Together they encouraged Lynda as she explored and developed her creative talent.
Lynda enjoys nothing more, than playing with a new medium or subject matter. This “fun” side of art is promoted by Lynda in the classes that she teaches. She wants her students to have “fun” with their creative side.
Lynda works in a variety of media and has continued to study art throughout her life. Her first formal training was with noted landscape painter Robert Emerson Everett, a family friend. Lynda has herself become a teacher in her field teaching a variety of courses in the art field. She instructs at the Muskoka Summer Art School as well as privately at her studio.
In addition to her painting, Lynda has worked as an interior decorator, using her eye for placement, colour and harmony assisting home and cottage owners. She was co-owner of a successful Christmas and Gift Shop and in 1995 she was a founding director of the Muskoka School of the Arts. Lynda is an award winning real estate Broker with Royal LePage Lakes of Muskoka where she uses her knowledge and passion for Muskoka to assist her clients.
