Trained at the National Art School Sydney, Lynne practiced as a leading illustrator in Sydney for 13 years before owning and opening two art galleries, a ceramic and a glass art studio.

Lynne’s garden on the D’Entrecasteaux Channel at Middleton, provides a continuous source of inspiration for her work. She grows many of the distinctive Gondwanan plants that were isolated as Tasmania broke away from Antarctica 40 million years ago.
