Having lived and worked in France for several years has enabled her to visit major collections and exhibitions and to paint at many spectacular European sites. The softer European light offered a new opportunity, while immersion in French culture proved challenging, surprising and always interesting, and gave her the opportunity to work on her Art history thesis and to exhibit in France.

Demeurer et travailler en France pendant plusieurs années a permis à Lyn de voir des collections et des expositions d’art importantes, et aussi de peindre beaucoup de sites spectaculaires d’Europe. La lumière plus douce d’Europe lui a offert une nouvelle occasion, tandis que l’immersion dans la culture française s’est montrée stimulante, étonnante, et toujours fascinante, et lui a donnée l’occasion de rechercher pour sa thèse de l’histoire de l’art et d’exposer son oeuvre en France.
