" The beauty of a wild animal isn't enhanced by its surroundings. If you stop to notice them you'll find they make our surroundings a better place." Lynn Weymark
I can't remember or even imagine a time when I wasn't captivated by animals and nature. The colors, textures and even smells of the area I grew up in are still with me today. I find I can create an image and a mood, from even the most insignificant setting. These places or situations are overlooked as we go through our day-to-day lives. It challenges me to find and paint these unique settings and inspires me to keep growing as an artist.
Born in 1962 in Prince Edward County, Ontario, Lynn Weymark spent her days horseback riding through the forests and countryside near her home. This is the inspiration that follows her even today.
Sketching for most of her life Lynn began using acrylics in 1994. A natural at capturing realism, she painted everything from dog portraits to people and was commissioned to reproduce local buildings by a prestigious real estate company. Six years ago she turned her talents toward her first love of wildlife. The response was overwhelming and Lynn made the decision to dedicate her talent to that subject and expanded her medium to include oils as well as pencil. Her studio is her home in Oshawa Ontario. Beautiful parks and countryside nearby is where she enjoys hikes, making sure her camera is close at hand.
Lynn displayed annually in the prestigious, Christmas at Presquile show in Brighton Ontario. Her work can also be viewed at Quinte Custom Art and Frame, Trenton and The Renaissance Gallery in Deseronto . She competed regularly in Ducks Unlimited print portfolio events as well as the annual Wildlife Habitat Canada duck stamp contest where she was only one of 40 artists accepted to participate. For two years running she gave her time and donated a print, for the annual Art for Animals show in Trenton Ontario, with select artists such as Michael Dumas and Brent Townsend. Money raised goes to aid a local animal shelter.
Concerned with the preservation of our wildlife, Lynn donated to the Ontario Federation of Hunters and Anglers Association. She also donates a limited edition print yearly to a local healthcare organization. The importance of art in our schools is also a great concern and Lynn has given of her time by making appearances in local classrooms.
Lynns paintings are in private collections both in Canada and the United States. Select images are available in Limited Edition Giclee prints and Lithographs. Originals are also available and Lynn will take commissions. Contact by email or phone for pricing and additional information.
