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. Worked mostly as a graphic artist for 12 years before switching careers as an electronic technician in research and development. Continued painting and drawing on the side throughout the years along with raising a family.
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.
Landscape painter using alcohol inks and watercolor to transform the natural beauty that surrounds us every day. Recently becoming more interested in plein air painting. “Drawing and painting from real life is about experiencing the time and place. Feeling the sun, wind, watching the shadows move.... all become part of the painting."

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-porous 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.
