Lynn Smith graduated from the University of Kent with a first class degree in Fine Art. Through
her work she seeks to question and explore the mystical and the spiritual, transforming
these abstract concepts into the physical, challenging viewers to look beyond the truths of
intellect and science. Soul Vessel (VI) is one of a series of sculptures based upon a fictitious
narrative of the Shamanic practice regarding lost souls which Lynn has interpreted as Soul
Vessels. Made of natural materials using traditional craft within fine art, they serve as storage
containers for the ethereal souls.
Lynn currently works in the Family Support Team at The Hospice.
