Born in a small town in Southern Maryland, where the panoramic view of farmland is plentiful to the eye, it is no wonder that E. Lynn Coates’ love for nature is reflected in her work. She enjoys painting landscapes and figures; aiming to capture the serenity and the beauty in the ordinary and uniquely reflecting those images in a loose and expressive style. Mrs. Coates’ artistic talents are expressed in oil, acrylic and pastels.
