Lyn Coffey grew up in an artistic household and has been painting since early childhood. She received her BFA at Parsons School of Design in NYC. Working professionally as a graphic designer has greatly influenced her fine art. Painting intuitively en plein air has become an important part of her process. When observing daily life or creating a narrative, capturing a true sense of place is inherent. Thoughtful loose mark-making along with the effect of light depicts the atmosphere of the day and gesture of the figure. As an award winning artist she has been working exclusively in oil with a focus on coastal landscapes since moving to Cape Cod in 2020. Lyn maintains a working studio in Cotuit, is represented by ‘The Colors of Chatham’, and can be found painting on location throughout New England.
