Lynda Smith

I have always been a self-employed creator. From planting colourful gardens, growing food, doing home renovations, cooking meals for my family to sewing our children’s and grandchildren’s clothing or costumes.

In 2014, on Vancouver Island, I built the Lawn to Food business which included an end-of-our-driveway produce farmstand, scones and pretzels from my kitchen, pickles & preserves. I used many thrifted frames to display and sell my original watercolour art at the Lawn to Food Urban Farmstand.

I find watercolour to be a fascinating medium to work with, I never know where it’s going to lead! Nature, animals, pet portraits, vegetables, gardens and abstract landscapes; everything is intriguing to me when I have pigment and brush in hand.

Covid relocated us closer to family in 2021 where I started Junco Studio in Westwood Plateau. I promote = #insteading - a lifestyle where one actively choses to grow, nurture, upcycle and beautify with available materials instead of purchasing new. I write, paint, sew, make, rake, bake and create! and am very grateful to be a new member of the Port Moody Art Association.

Junco Studio vendor's booth will be at select Port Moody, Coquitlam, PoCo & Haney Farmers Markets in 2024.
