An illustrator for over 30 years, Lynn Bywaters creates original drawings and paintings for greeting cards and children's books. She also designs a signature line of collectible figurines for Lenox. Through licensing, her work appears on a variety of products - from puzzles and prints to gift bags and tins.
Most of Lynn's finely detailed paintings are small: 5 1/2" x 7 3/4", and done in Winsor & Newton gouache on 3-ply Strathmore Cold Press paper with a #2 Winsor & Newton Series 7 watercolor brush. Because of the extreme detail in these paintings, they can be enlarged without losing their integrity.
Lynn's studio overlooks her gardens and a pond that borders farmland along the Connecticut River. She is entertained daily by the great variety of birds and animals attracted to the area, many of which find their way into her paintings. She enjoys gardening, hiking, her family and friends, daily walks with her dog, and occasionally, her cats.
