Lynne, a graduate of the University of Toronto and Sheridan College, has painted landscapes from coast to coast in Canada.

Each painting begins as a sketch on site before the image is ready for canvas and paint. The intent is to evoke a sense of belonging and connectedness. Working from sketches the paintings evolve from the lines – where trees meet sky, roots meet rock, earth meets water.

Lynne has been awarded three public art pieces, exhibited in various Canadian cities, and has works in private collections around the world. She credits her love of trees to growing up in Stratford, Ontario where Upper Queen’s Park was her playground. For every painting sold she plants 10 trees with the Tree Era Company.

When I was a child, my mom would say “stop being such a Silly Goat”. The name kind of stuck.
