"Tea 'n Turps" takes a humorous look at the lives and work of 12 well- established artists living and working in Ireland. The book is sub-titled "Taking Tea with Artists" and show-cases Lynda's ability to draw the anecdotes and human interest stories from these sometimes eccentric folk. It showcases the artists as human beings before looking at their philosophies, influences and techniques. A delightful book!
