Hello and welcome to my page, I am a Visual Artist, Fibre Artist, Performing Artist, Musician, Ceramic Artist, Mixed/Multi Media, Photo/Film Artist
Lyn has been a part of the local arts community for over thirty years. Art education from Douglas and Kwantlen Colleges, combined with her active background in performing and visual arts, contribute to a rich foundation for her creative skills. Lyn's own art practice consists of hand-dyeing natural fabrics, mixed media art and photography. Conscious of the environment, she also upcycles pre-owned clothing and uses found objects in her mixed media pieces. Lyn is an children’s art instructor with the Surrey Art Gallery and loves creating art with children; they always seem to be open to limitless possibilities. In 2017, Lyn was awarded one of seven BC Culture Days Ambassador positions, for the annual Canada-wide arts initiative, Culture Days, representing the City of Surrey. She is currently the Cöordinator for the Youth Arts Council for the Arts Council of Surrey, mentoring and supporting youth in literary, performing and visual arts events and opportunities.

Samples of my work
Lyn has been dyeing silk for over eight years. The kanoko, itajime and arashi shibori styles were explored at the beginning of her dyeing journey and continue to be a part of creating wearable art pieces. In the last couple of years, Lyn has enjoyed the almost water colour-like results of ice dyeing and more recently, has ventured into dyeing with botanicals. Lyn feels that dyeing natural fabrics with botanicals, is a fitting combination just as art can be an integral part of healing and wellness. This past year, it’s been apparent that art has helped Lyn weather the many changes, giving her a way to focus, express and relax. She hopes that her soft, colourful fabrics, as well as the other artists’ work in the Healing Garden, will offer you a moment of solace and delight.
