Linda Flynn has been drawing and painting for most of her life. She graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a BA-Studio Art, majoring in painting. Landscape painter using mostly acrylic until she discovered alcohol inks. Alcohol inks quickly became her medium of choice to express the fluid nature of landscape paintings.
Semi-retired to Wilmington, North Carolina in March 2017 to fully immerse herself in the coastal art world. She participates in several markets during the week and major art festivals on weekends.
Recently joined the Franklin Square Gallery in Southport, NC. It is a co-operative gallery and every member who exhibits must work the gallery. She exhibits many original paintings and prints and can be found working the front desk every first Wednesday of every month.

Description of Materials and Techniques
I paint with alcohol ink on yupo paper, ceramic tile and aluminum. Alcohol Inks are a dye-based ink that uses isopropyl alcohol to dilute and blend. I paint on non-pourous surfaces in order to maintain the full brightness and luminosity of the colors. Selected images are then printed onto various surfaces with the unique method of dye sublimation. Dye Sublimation is an image transfer process that uses heat and pressure for printing. All painting and printing are done in my home studio in Wilmington, NC.
