Lynda Toews grew up in Winnipeg but moved to South East Manitoba in 2010. Rural life has inspired her to paint the surrounding farm animals with a particular interest not only in capturing their individual personalities, but also in the way the light delineates their forms. She particularly enjoys painting the beautiful form of horses. Over the past year she finds herself moving towards a slightly looser style and more arbitrary colours in some of her paintings. Her latest exhibitions have also included a booklet of heritage farm animal-related stories collected by Toews.
