Lynda Manson grew up in Ontario, Canada and graduated from the University of Guelph with a degree in Textiles and Design. She moved with her family to the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia in 2009 after spending many years working as a designer and fibre artist.
Choosing to take a different path for her creative expression, Lynda enthusiastically joined the world of fine art a few years ago. Her favourite media, oil pastels and acrylics, allow her to express herself in realism, and more recently, abstract themes. Portraiture is also one of her passions.
“Nature themes dominate my paintings creating calm, peace , beauty using organic colour palettes, shapes and patterns which can be translated with my free flowing painting style. The ethereal nature of the mist, fog or clouds I frequently incorporate into my paintings are meant to draw you into the detailed areas of the painting in order to imagine what lies behind the veil.”
She is an Active Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists plus a member of the Sechelt Arts Council, The Gibsons Public Art Gallery and the Sechelt Cultural Alliance.
Her work can be found in galleries, professional offices and private collections.
