Linzi Lynn knew from an early age she was going to be an artist; however, she thought it was just going to be a performing artist. Her parents had sent her to theatrical school when she demonstrated as a young child, a talent for finding drama in the everyday. In 1973, Lynn began channeling her artistic creativity into painting. Her theatrical background helped her to be sensitive to the emotions of her subjects, which she was then able to transfer onto canvas. She says that "both visual art and theater are forms of creative expression, inspiration and entertainment."
One of Lynn’s commissions was by the National Rural Letter Carriers for a pencil portrait of Benjamin Franklin. The subtle soft realism that can come from her pencil is in surprising contrast to her most recent bright, expressionistic paintings.
A native of London, Linzi Lynn came to the United States in 1992 after living in the South of France for many years. She now calls Los Angeles, California home.
