About Kathleen Lynch: After studying Anthropology at University of Toronto and Bryn Mawr College, Kathleen's first job was with a historic archaeology project in Nova Scotia ... Several years later ... she joined the faculty of University of Alaska. For ten years, she worked in Native education. The work involved a lot of traveling throughout Alaska. She later depicted what she had seen in sketches of Native villagers, flora and wildlife ... Since 1995, she has been painting full time. Her subjects include northern images, West Coast themes, and still-life. Many are available as mini-prints which have been collected worldwide.

Kathleen's work has been exhibited in juried shows in Canada and the United States. Several of her images have been selected in calendar competitions including those produced by Island Illustrators Society and First National Bank of Anchorage. Her poster depicting the 1988 Barrow Whale Rescue appeared as cover art for the Russian magazine Northern Peoples."
