Lynda Harris Fine Art

Lynda Harris Kitten ArtLYNDA HARRIS graduated from NC State University with a Master’s in Landscape Architecture and has spent the last 30 years designing urban and commercial spaces, urban parks, and residential hardscapes and gardens. Although she drew with pen and rendered detailed landscape drawings and elevations with markers and pastel pencils, she never translated her talent into painting.

Lynda’s passion for design and gardening has led to painting with a focus on landscapes and ones that many times include architectural elements. Learning how to capture light and mood while not being a slave to photographs is an ongoing creative challenge.

Lynda has studied with nationally known artists Rick McClure, John Poon, Dawn Whitelaw, Albert Handell and David Dunlop. She has also studied with locally based artists Becky Patman, Nicole White Kennedy and Bob Rankin. Her work has been displayed at the gallery of Nicole White Kennedy. Some of Lynda’s most recent works were displayed at the 2018 Cary Lazy Daze Art Fair, Cary, NC where she sold 56 paintings, and at Margaux’s Restaurant in Raleigh where she had a successful 3-month one-person show.

She has a permanent exhibition at 311 Gallery, 311 W Martin St. Raleigh, NC.
