Lynda was born in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los Angeles. In elementary school, her family moved to Washington. And, she spent the rest of her childhood in the Pacific Northwest. Growing up, Lynda didn’t want to be a nurse, or even work in the medical field. Despite her family’s encouragement, she didn’t believe she would enjoy working in the medical field.
In middle school, Lynda’s art teacher sparked her artistic interest and introduced her to the art world. Finding interest in many mediums including charcoal, oil on canvas, and sketching, she began playing with the concepts of light and shadow. Art remains a lifelong passion.
