Artist Bio - Lynn De Lacey
LYNN DE LACEY
Born in Africa, she grew up being immersed in the creation of nature on canvas, and veiwed it in all its extraordinary variety, depth, and luminescence, as constantly inspirational. Being on Zafari with her camera and sketch books is one of her favorite places. As a child, in remote areas in the African savannah, she had plenty of time to study nature and was never without her pencils and paints. Her artworks were always encouraged by her mother and grandmother, who were both artists in their own right. Her early aspirations were rewarded with many First, Second and Third prizes .
Living in a land where extreme poverty or wealth existed side by side, or where kindness and compassion were constant companions to cruelty, life was never dull. As she grew older, war ravaged the land, and her life took many twists and turns before she could finally pursue her passion for art and painting as a mature adult.
Now, living in peace in a village on the Sunshine Coast in Australia, she paints & draws her beautiful surroundings and sometimes her earlier memories. She is grateful to be able to pursue her passion for creative art.
She donates 2% + of her sales to various agencies responsible for saving our wildlife and our planet through GreenPeace, David Shepherd WildLife Org.and AVAAZ.Org
