Lynda Gibson

About Lynda

Cambridge born Lynda Gibson began as an artist when she moved to southern Spain to live. Inspired by the culture and atmosphere, the warm weather and the vibrant colours that surrounded her, she began to observe the people and places around her.

Influenced by a fusion of styles from Gibraltar, Morocco and Spain, Lynda began by painting watercolours of cafe scenes, capturing the people as they relaxed and enjoyed the slower pace of life. On her return to England, Lynda married, raised her two children and now lives in Newmarket.

The climate may not be as hot, but Lynda has continued to capture the warmth of the people around her and now concentrates on painting local scenes, often using chalk pastels.

Ladies day at Newmarket racecourse is a particular favourite of Lynda’s, capturing the excitement of the event, the bright jockey colours, the horses and the elegantly- attired crowds.

Her art is often set in the 1960s and 1970s - Lynda’s most favoured decades – and her love is shared by a growing number of collectors, selling to enthusiasts from all over the world. She has also completed commissioned pieces.
