entrepreneurial skills kicked in when she envisioned the arts changing over the
recession. This led her to more training in Web Design and took her to a new
city where she also, worked on Commissions (Pets and People Portraits) in her
home studio. Her spare time, led her outside to enjoy birding and taking seasonal
trips up to Algonquin. She loves plein air painting there and knew nature and
wildlife was her calling. Lynda’s former employment as a Veterinary Technician
led her to appreciate the delicate beauty of our wildlife and our importance of
preserving habitat. Inspired by Wildlife and the land they call home, Lynda
works passionately and tirelessly, documenting incredible species to raise
awareness of the effect on their long-term survival. Lynda pledges back with
each painting that is sold, to help sustain their existence.

surfaces with her Wildlife Algonquin Series and tiny canvases for her Avian Migrations
