About the Artists
Lynn Naismith's paintings are exhibited in galleries in Victoria, Queensland, New South Wales and the ACT.
Born in 1942 Lynn grew up in the pristine bushland setting of the Woronora River on the outskirts of Sydney, New South Wales. These early years instilled in her deep and lasting bond with the bush and its wildlife, but it was the birds particularly that captured Lynn's imagination and from an early age encouraged her to develop her natural drawing skills.
During the 1960's Lynn travelled and lived overseas for several years. On returning to Australia she and her husband settled in Sydney to raise their son and daughter. It wasn't until the late 1980's that Lynn had the time and the freedom to experiment with water colours, and even though she had never received formal art training, her work soon came to the attention of Gallery directors.
