Lynn Kelly was born and raised in the town of Salmon Arm in south central B.C.  Her initial pursuit of a career in construction eventually landed her in Toronto where, in 1992, desperate for a creative outlet, Lynn finally began to paint. 

Working on Arches 140 lb cold press paper or canvas, she employs watercolours, acrylics and oils.  Her works are bold flamboyant  portrayals that uplift and inspire the viewer.  Bursting with passion and energy, the kaleidoscope of images employ the harmony of design and the vitality of colour. 

After obtaining a certificate in Fine Art from Sheridan College in Oakville, Lynn continues learning through courses at the Toronto School of Art as well as workshops with well known local and international artists.  She is a member of Visual Arts Ontario, the Central Ontario Art Association, Humber Valley Art Club, and Neilson Park Creative Centre.  Lynn is a founding member of the Woodstream Watercolour Group and an Associate member of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour. 

Regularly participating in group shows, she has held solo exhibitions, received awards in open shows and consistently has her work accepted in Juried Shows locally and internationally.  Lynn’s work is held in government and corporate collections in Ontario and private collections world wide.  Her work is available through her studio in North York and the Westmount Gallery in Etobicoke. 

My work is a series of realistic yet fractured images.  In a chaotic world of too much stress and not enough time, our fractured lives contain beautiful passages if we but look.  I take the everyday things that give me pleasure and translate them into compositions as varied as nature itself.  By putting more emphasis on the beautiful passages I intend to show people it is possible to live their lives on a loving and harmonious level and relegate the broken dreams to the shadows of their existence.”
