Born and raised in the wilds of the Scottish Borders—into a creative family with strong African links—Lynnie Z was instilled with a fascination of people and cultures at an early age. Now in London, her distinctive style is marked by bold, bright colour palettes and playful charismatic characters. These mysterious, seductive creatures and powerful femme fatales are brought to life using ink, paint and paint pens. Lynnie studied illustration at Kingston University and has exhibited in the UK, Europe and the US. Over the years, Lynnie has collaborated with numerous high-profile clients, including MAC Cosmetics, Absolut Vodka, Nike, Taschen, Monki and Sony.
I spread out on the floor with papers and drawings and inspiration, and I just draw. I draw and draw and draw, and just go go go.Lynnie Z
