At Flynn River Company, we make it simple for art and nature lovers to collect fine art and support successful nature advocacy programs in a cooperative way.  Each purchase supports Cape Fear River Watch, thereby completing the cycle: nature > art > advocacy.  Incorporate an original Flynn River Co. watercolor in your interior design and ensure the health and beauty of one of our nation's most elegant and delicate ecosystems - the Cape Fear River - for generations to come.

Linda Flynn is an artist filled with watercolor wanderlust.  Her travels across the United States inspire her original, loose, earth-toned watercolor paintings and sketches that reflect our country's most precious natural resources. With a bachelor's degree in Studio Art from University of New Hampshire, Linda is a member of Wilmington Art Association, Art League of Leland, Brunswick County Arts Council and Cape Fear Sketchers.  Her work is displayed in galleries and shops in North Carolina and New York.  Linda currently lives in Wilmington, NC with her husband. 

Cape Fear River Watch - led by its fearless Riverkeeper - Kemp Burdette, protects and improves the water quality of the Cape Fear River Basin for all people through education, advocacy and action.  Founded in 1993, CFRW is a non-profit organization headquartered in Wilmington, NC.  Through its lawsuit in 2019, CFRW - represented by Southern Environmental Law Center - forced toxic polluter Chemours to invest hundreds of millions to clean-up pollution at their site and in the Cape Fear River; this legal victory, represented by EarthJustice, ensured that the US EPA doesn’t backslide on a needed overhaul of the Toxic Substances Control Act.  To learn more, visit:
