Cabrini Lynch was born in Dublin and studied Art History at Trinity College Dublin and Fine Art and Sculpture at the Dublin Institute of Technology and the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, where she graduated with a first class honours degree in fine art.
Cabrini paints in all media and finds inspiration in nature; she has stated that the sea has captivated her all her life, at times threatening, other times a source of comfort and contemplation.
Her work has evolved from this fascination and interest in the energy and force of the wide-open seascape, the ebb and flow of the tides, the patterns, textures and wrack left on the seashore by outgoing tides. Cabrini points out that she enjoys the challenge in trying to capture the sea's rhythmic movement, the play of light on the water and the great stretches of undulating sand marked by the sea and the wind. Cabrini's work is a very personal and subjective response to the sea and the seashore.
Throughout the years Cabrini Lynch's work has been selected to exhibit in many open exhibitions and group exhibitions such as the RHA, the Oireachtas, the original Print Gallery and the James Gallery Dublin and numerous Art Centers around Ireland.
Cabrini won the 2002 Arts Council Award for painting and the Bonn an Uachtarain de Hide gold medal. Currently, Cabrini works and paints at her studio in Dublin. She also teaches art and art history at the adult education department in Cabenteely Community School and at various community centres in Dublin.
