Lynda Gilmore is a native Mississippian who grew up on the Coast. She graduated from USM with a degree in mathematics. She has always been active in community projects in Jackson and Bay St. Louis, while raising four wonderful children.
After retiring from her last job as an algebra teacher, Lynda began taking art classes. “I can truly say that once I got involved in art, I don’t see things the same. I notice the brilliance in the colors and shapes.”
She has been studying for the past few years under the direction of John and Tricia McDonald, Kathe Calhoun and Karen Renz. Lynda now works in pastels, oil and watercolor.
