Last Light Muskoka

Bridal Veil

Muskoka runs deep in her soul. With her studio located in Bracebridge, Lynda is a fifth generation Muskokan, her family having received land grants from the Crown in the mid 1800s.

She attributes her love and fascination with light and colour to her grandmother and to her mother, both of whom made beautiful quilts and grew gardens full of luscious texture. They always encouraged exploration of a creative nature and Lynda enjoys nothing better than playing with a new medium or subject matter. This “fun” side of art is greatly enjoyed in the classes that she teaches.  

Lynda works in a variety of media and has continued to study art throughout her life, her first formal training being with noted landscape painter Robert Emerson Everett, a family friend. She has worked in interior decorating and has taught a variety of courses in the art field.  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. She instructs at the Muskoka Summer Art School as well as privately at her studio. Lynda is a well known real estate Broker with Royal Lepage Lakes of Muskoka.  

“The world around me holds infinite curiosity and interest, and I find the whole field of artistic expression fascinating. I paint colour subjectively, trying to capture the intrinsic spirit of the subject. Art is a matter of perception, with its elements changing through both the eyes of the artist and with the viewer. I like to play and experiment with the challenge of light playing on colour, to combine all of the elements in a satisfying whole, hoping to stir the imagination of the viewer, in order to communicate to and involve them on a personal level. I prefer an impressionistic to somewhat abstract form of expression, leaving space for personal involvement and interpretation to each person who views the work.”  A love of nature and concern for our environment is often reflected in her varied subject matter. Never content to remain static, Lynda is always looking to push her boundaries and to grow.  

This great sense of exploration (and some humour) led to an exciting, collaborative and creative adventure with fellow artist Pam Wong.  In 1997, they began “painting in tandem”, working simultaneously on single paintings. This requires a setting aside of egos and allowing themselves to go with the flow of the work, which is both immediate and lively. The resulting paintings are not like the works of either of these talented artists, but of another entity altogether.  

Lynda’s paintings hang in private and corporate collections internationally.
