Lynette Hedrick was born in Dunedin and now lives in Christchurch. Her work is in oils on canvas and board. Lynette is inspired by Pablo Picasso, which is reflected in her art.
Lynette grew up listening to her mother Mattie’s stories about her WW2 love for US Navy Diver Charlie. She used Mattie’s 30 letters from Charlie, and together with her insightful editor/advisor husband, Bud, they completed extensive research to give reality to The Rigel Affair, her Debut Novel published in the USA, December 2018.
