About Lyn Diefenbach:

A professional artist for more than 30 years, Lyn has had many sell-out solo shows and has been featured in a host of international and national exhibitions. Her reputation on the international stage saw her invited to demonstrate at the 100 Years of Pastelling in China celebrations – one of only 6 international guest artists to be so honored. An ever-increasing number of invitations to judge competitions (including the floral and still life portion of the Pastel Journal’s 2022 Pastel 100 competition) is a testament to her skills and reputation.

Her paintings cover a myriad of subject matter, including portraits, seascapes, still life, and florals, all of which consistently receive accolades and awards across the globe. The pursuit of masterly quality and technique is a high priority for Lyn, whose work is imbued with a lifetime of practice and is a celebration of her faith and of life.
