Irene Lynch Art

Local Watercolorist and Oil Painter


Irene Lynch’s artwork reflects her lifetime spent soaking in the unmatched beauty, charm, and inspiration of home, Cape Cod. In her final year at University of Massachusetts of Amherst, she found herself gravitating toward familiar landscapes when creating paintings. Inspired by the art and techniques she has observed on her many travels worldwide, Irene has developed her own style that captures the essence of her home.

The portability of her watercolor and ink pen have allowed Irene to continue her creative studies and grow her portfolio throughout her travels; but her favorite place to paint is while relaxing in the summer sun on her favorite Cape Cod beaches.

Irene combines a painterly application of watercolor which she details with pen to create a more illustrative approach to Cape Cod landscapes. Her paintings welcome viewers to enter her scenes and relive their favorite narratives attached to the subject. Irene’s paintings have been given a greater depth through the many stories and moments that resonate with viewers. Irene paints from her heart to reach yours.


Irene Lynch’s artwork can be found year-round through her website www.irenelynchart.com and her Instagram found at @irenelynchart. She hangs paintings at various local shops such as Cottage Street Bakery, Elburne, Cottage, and Bennett Gallery. Irene can be found this summer at the Orleans Artist Cottages as well as the Artist Shanties in Hyannis. Irene was featured in Cape Cod Life’s 2018 edition of Emerging Artists.
