Lynden Cowan


Artist Lynden Cowan’s interest in painting began at age eight when she began to create her own art materials from plants and other materials and her mother’s pots.

This self- taught artist was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia and her Maritime experiences heavily influenced how the artist viewed her surrounding environment and were expressed in her artwork.

The artist has exhibited in London, Canada, and the United States, is represented Internationally, by the Circle Foundation of Lyon, France, and has been juried into many international competitive exhibitions.

Lynden Cowan is a member of SCA, OSA, CFS, NOAPS, SOVA, and a Signature member of Artists for Conservation, and Federation of Canadian Artists
