About Me

Hello. I’m Lynna. Welcome to my online studio.

Lynna Gold Smith

I am a multi disciplinary artist with an insatiable curiosity, intrigued by the unknown, the mysterious, the intangible qualities of nature and human experience.

I am both a theatre practitioner and visual artist, and I can usually be found most days working in my studio on one or the other of these twin passions.

As a visual artist, I work with diverse subject matter and move back and forth between pure abstract and more representational ideas, including florals, figures and portraits, but I am primarily an abstract expressionist.

In all my paintings I seek a world that exists somewhere between memory and dream. If I am painting a landscape, I want to express the feeling of a place more than a representation of it. The landscape becomes a metaphor for the human emotions of loss, longing, elation, wonder and astonishment.

My studio is located in Vancouver  on  what must be acknowledged as the stolen lands of the Coast Salish People. The xʷməθkʷəy̓əm  Sḵwx̱wú7mesh  Səlilwətaɬ nations. I am grateful to be here making art in these beautiful territories.
