Lynn Ricci is best known for capturing the seasonal beauty of her New England home, focusing on realism and impressionistic oil paintings of Massachusetts' coastal towns and islands, the historical city of Boston, and the forests and farms further out in the country.
Lynn draws her inspiration from her New England surroundings. While growing up north of Boston, Lynn spent summers enjoying the beaches of the North Shore and Cape Cod and time on her family's boat admiring the coast and islands. Back at home, she would use paper and canvas to capture these sights.
Lynn went to school for a commercial art certificate and attended Mass College of Art in Boston for fine arts until deciding to change her professional career path - turning toward investor relations and corporate communications roles. Lynn never completely stopped painting and made a full return in 2013 with the goal of sharing her work more broadly through online reach, exhibits, and galleries.
Lynn still resides north of Boston with her two sons and springer spaniel Fenway, and spends every chance she can get in Chatham and by the coast.
