Lynn Hachey Nordhagen
Lynn Hachey Nordhagen is a Northern Alberta artist with a growing presence in the Peace Country art scene. She grew up in Falher, Alberta where she started drawing in graphite, charcoal and ink at a young age. Now a teacher in the Beaverlodge area, she primarily works in oil, gouache, and arcrylic mediums with a focus on the play of vibrant colour, light and shadow. Inspiration can strike her anywhere, and you can often see her snapping photos to later capture the feeling or effect of a place in a painting. When possible Lynn enjoys painting outdoors, or plein air.
Her work features a vast array of subjects including landscapes, waterscapes, and urbanscapes in a painterly representational style. She prefers to let the viewer’s imagination complete the details of a painting, rather than employ a hyperrealism style. Alberta prairie scenes are featured in her work, as well as travel scenes from such places as B.C. and Europe.
Lynn is an active member of the Federation of Canada Artists in which she has been juried into multiple shows. She has had work featured in TREX, or the Travelling Exhibition Show in Alberta, the Grande Prairie Art Gallery, the Creative Arts Centre, the Beaverlodge Cultural Center, Fairview Art Gallery, as well as galleries in BC. She has studied with Tim Horn David Langevin, and Marina Fridman. Lynn has sold numerous pieces locally and nationally, and takes commissions on a limited basis due to her busy schedule as a teacher and mother of three.
