Lynn (Alington) O'Brien was born and raised in Penticton, B.C., in the Okanagan Valley. After obtaining her RN, she travelled the world for two and a half years, living in New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Iran. Many of her paintings reflect the exotic influences of her earlier travels and adventures.
Lynn's art is a unique blend of experience, insight and spirit; although she paints alone in her studio, she feels surrounded by her mentors and teachers, all of whom helped ignite her passion and hone her talent.
Lynn works in acrylics and mixed media, painting abstracts, florals, landscapes and representaional art, allowing her to fulfill her passion for colour by transforming the quiet of a blank canvas into bright, bold and exciting paintings.
In 2014 Lynn returned to her birthplace, making the beautiful Okanagan her home once more.
