Lynn Bennett-mackenzie

Biography

Born in 1967 and brought up in remote rural areas of the Highlands of Scotland, Lynn studied at Gray’s School of Art graduating in 1990. Based on a picturesque croft in Gairloch Lynn has a workshop/studio, from where she also operates a framing business.

Working in watercolour, pen & ink, acrylic and oil, Lynn takes inspiration from her surroundings – the sea, sky, colours, light and aims to capture an essence of emotion in her work drawing the viewer in to the story that unfolds.

Various shows as a student including, Wood group – Foresterhill - Aberdeen, RSA student’s exhibition - Edinburgh, Sketch club – Aberdeen, Highland Open – touring Highlands, New Graduates – touring Highlands
