Collection: Lynn Chidwick
Born in Kenya, Lynn obtained a Master of Environmental Studies from York University in Toronto. After working in that field for a number of years, she realized her passion for art. Experimenting with many mediums over the years Lynn has devoted her work to the time honoured tradition of stained and leaded glass. Inspired by nature and artists past and present her bending and blending of colour and light elevates the spirit. The predominant aspect of Lynn’s work is influenced by her study of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Currently, there is particular emphasis in the eras of Art Deco and Art Nouveau. Using a variety of methods including fusing, gold leafing, etching, sandblasting carving, painting, layering and leading, Lynn integrates the various elements of such artists as Morris, Mackintosh, Gaudi, Guimard and Klimt. Lynn creates original abstractions drawing from the essence of these rich and varied traditions.
