Lynn Ellis uses the elements of landscape and city-scape as a bridge between her interior self and the world; her images reflect both vulnerability and resilience. She creates Fine Art Photography which she hopes will be appreciated for its many layers of meaning and depth and stand the test of time for the purchaser. The South Shore, with its moody foggy days is an excellent resource for this work. Lynn is presently an MFA student at Maine Media College, Rockport, Maine graduating in 2019. Her images can be found at Viewpoint Gallery, Halifax, NS and on her website www.lynnellis.ca.
