Linny D. Vine’s distinctive contemporary paintings are known for their joyful energy. Cherry blossoms in full bloom, warm curving paths that invite exploration, each building and tree alive with its own special personality. The hour of day and the time of season both captured at their fullest and most colorful.
Linny’s inspiration is the visual world, its
beautiful rhythmic patterns of color and light, as well as her intrigue in discovering the unusual within the usual. She combines these inspirations with her richly imaginative narration to create paintings that are full of life and joy.
Linny’s past careers in goldsmith and garden design, plus her experience in commercial photography, contribute to the original perspective and strong design of her work. Whether Linny is painting en plein air or in studio, with oil or with acrylic, her expressive brushwork and unique vision of the world combine to create paintings that celebrate the wonderful character and joyous imperfectness of life.
Linny was born in Saskatchewan, grew up in and around Vancouver and has lived in Victoria since 1992 where she shares her love of painting with her life partner, Jeffrey. Linny’s paintings are treasured in private collections across North America and abroad.
