I’ve known Lyn’s work for many years and always been impressed by her subject matter and craft. I love the dignity and strength of ‘Winged Figure’; there’s more to her than meets the eye. The image spoke to me immediately when I stumbled across it on Lyn’s website late one night. I was delighted when she kindly gave permission to use it.
