Lynn was born in Pittenweem, Fife and trained at Edinburgh College of Art. She was elected RSW (Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour) in 2001 and is a professional member of VAS (Visual Arts Scotland) and SSA (Society of Scottish Artists). Lynn lived on an otherwise uninhabited island in Strangford Lough with my husband Michael Faulkner, who is a writer and editor for twelve years. 'The source of my work is landscape in memory. I work intuitively to try to find a balance between the various elements of texture, movement and geometry found in the landscape, using energetic over-layerings of colour and blocking out shapes and marks as I work. Initially I allow myself to be led by the paint and the marks, then later take control of the medium, hopefully without losing the initial immediacy.'
