Lynne Gaetz is a visual artist based in Niagara on the Lake, Ontario. Born in Calgary, Alberta, Lynne has spent most of her adult life living and working in and around Montreal, Quebec. In the fall of 2020, she moved to the Niagara region. Originally an oil painter, she has begun integrating mixed media, words, and gold and silver leaf into her work. Her figurative paintings have surreal and mystical elements, and feature people with horns, antlers, and extremely tall hats. She also creates fantasy landscapes with collage, and she occasionally creates abstract works.
Many different elements have contributed to her artistic direction: She has studied art at universities in Calgary, Quebec City, Montreal, and India. Additionally, her travels to places such as Mexico, Turkey, Kenya, Morocco, and Chile have influenced her colour palette.
She continues to learn, taking workshops, conversing with other artists, and challenging herself to risk new directions. She has exhibited in galleries in Alberta, Quebec, and Ontario, and her work is in several private collections
