Lynne Ryall has been painting in her spare time ever since high school, experimenting with different styles and techniques. She is drawn back to her first love, impressionistic landscape painting, and much of her work centres on the stylization and abstraction of Canadian landscape. Although most of her subject matter is Ontario landscape, she travels extensively in Canada and abroad, taking opportunities to photograph, sketch, and paint on-site. Lynne paints mainly in oils but also works in acrylic and watercolour. Most of her large canvases are painted in the studio, but she also eagerly paints En Plein air. Lynne took studio space at the Cotton Factory in Hamilton after she retired from a career as a secondary school Visual Art, Media, and History teacher with the Peel District School Board.
