Lynn Laughren

Vancouver Islander Lynn Laughren is an artistic "free spirit. 
She creates her metal sculptures in her workshop which is nestled near the 
sweet fragrance of the world famous Butchard Gardens. Lynn is  self taught artist in many fields. She started experimenting with metal things to make for herself and friends. Soon she started selling her work at country markets and craft fairs. Eventually Lynn expanded from selling just from her studio/machine shop to offering her metalcraft through several local shops. "Anything for a Buck" is Lynn's philosophy towards her metal work. Indoor & outdoor furniture, railings, gates or scupltures - anything for a buck. Her favorite comment is "If I can draw it, I can make it." Never satisfied, Lynn has taken courses and workshops in blacksmithing, mosaics and clay sculpting. She plans to combine assorted materials with her metal work to always be creating something different.
