Playful * Intuitive * Expressions
“My paintings are born from a place of free spirit, celebrating vitality and uniqueness. Trusting in the creative process, I embrace a path of exploration and discovery. My art is an intuitive conversation, often beginning with no preconceived ideas. My voice is joyfully applied to the canvas and in return, a new world opens up with exciting, soulful inspiration, where anything is possible. I listen and reply by painting what the piece seems to be asking for. Giving and taking, until it feels harmonious and all is right with my world. Wholeheartedly, a painting is born!” -Lynda
