About Lynn Kenny
From learning her craft in inner city Dublin in NCAD to honing it amongst the forests and lakes of rural Co Clare; Lynn moved west with her husband over a decade ago to start a new life and family. Here a spacious studio accommodates her expanding creative ranges and projects. Being nestled in nature is a constant inspiration for her creative life. At a young age growing up in Dublin, Lynn became a voracious stitcher and stitch has continued to be a predominant and signature feature in her work . It gives her great scope for rendering interesting texture, defining lines and endless means of attaching surfaces together especially with mixed media. This versatility really excites her. ‘Each piece is an exploration and it is always exciting to see what qualities each one brings’.

Lynn's aim is to create work that uplifts and reflects experiences and emotions in a playful and humourous way through her stylised bird motif, using free motion embroidery with unusual paper surfaces and paint to create these pieces. Lynn was excited by the idea of firing these textured embroidered images onto a hard surface, creating an interesting juxtaposition; playful imagery onto the delicate surface of bone china. Each piece is fired in her studio kiln.
