I have pursued my interest in art since my teenage years. Every opportunity was taken to draw. I raised my family, worked as an accountant throughout my career. But art remained my dream. My love of drawing gradually was overshadowed by my discovery of painting and colour. With no formal training, I have taken private lessons and workshops to hone my skills. In 2020 I became part of the Levelling Up (online mentoring with professional artists) group where I have been mentored by 3 different mentors. I continue to evolve. I started showing my paintings publicly in group shows as part of various art groups then as part of the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA). I have become an Active member of the FCA and now have paintings hanging in collections in Canada, USA and England as well as Matheson Gallery in Penticton. My website www.lynnemarandart.com displays some of my work as does my Facebook page and Instagram account (#lynnemarandart). I paint to share my love of the surrounding beauty.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
My inspiration comes from the beauty surrounding me. A stormy sky, a beautiful flower, a valley view, my dog Izzy and so many other things can evoke an emotional response in me that spurs my passion to paint.
Like most artists my style and technique have evolved over time. My technique differs with impressionist paintings and abstracts. For most paintings, I have painted them in my mind prior to even starting to apply paint to canvas. For the impressionist paintings, I start with an edited photo, apply whatever texture I’m planning on using then proceed to apply layers of paint starting with a warm color progressing through to dark while leaving bits of each layers showing. For abstracts once I have established a basic compositional plan I just start painting.
