Lynch lives and works in Jamaica Plain, a neighborhood of Boston, in a handmade house/studio with a garden of fruits, vegetables and flowers.
Critics say of her work: “Lynch has inspiration and intellect to spare. Her installation embraces the illogic of chance, double dealing, and rule breaking that too often define our lives. Her work also includes the overt nod to Dada and recalls Duchamp’s passion for chess.” — John Stomberg ART New England. ** “All is Folly succeeds in creating a kind of carnival of paintings – riotous and debauched, and altogether worthwhile.” — Cate McQuaid The Boston Globe.
