Based on a memory of Pen y Crug Iron Age hill fort just outside Brecon . Lynda was there recently helping a friend with soil sampling at a farm nearby and she looked and saw this house framed by the shape of the hill, it was a really striking image ! She has imagined the scene at night and it probably bears little resemblance to the real view !

Lynda was born in Sunderland in 1970, settling in Monmouth in the early 1980’s, where she has lived ever since. She studied Art Foundation at Newport College of Art & Design, followed by a degree in Visual Art at The University of Wales, Aberystwyth.

She worked for a number of years in a non art related business, always painting in her spare time. In 2007 she finally gave up her day job and started painting full time.

Her canvases are mostly depictions of landscapes in the Monmouth area – the final image often bears little relation to the original subject but all have a common starting point – the memory of a place she knows well.
