Lyn Plummer holds an MA(VA), by research, from Monash University, a PGDip FA (Sculpture) from the University of Melbourne and a DVA (Painting) from the Australian National University in Canberra. She lived in Northern Queensland and Papua New Guinea for many years. She has been Academic Leader of Painting at the School of Art, Otago Polytechnic, since 1998. She has taught Sculpture at Cheltenham School of Art (now Pittville Studios, University of Gloucestershire) in England and also in Australia, at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne; and she has also taught Painting and Drawing and Art History & Theory at Charles Sturt University in New South Wales.

Since 1994, as well as the sculptural and two-dimensional elements, her work has incorporated multiple and multi-tracked soundtracks, which have been created in collaboration with Australian artists Rodney Browne and Mark Finsterer. Digital media installation artist Rodney Browne has created three individual, computer-generated, soundtracks for two installation series, and composer-musician Mark Finsterer has composed and performed one for the series RE enact\DIS enchant. Browne and Finsterer are currently collaborating with Plummer on an interactive video and soundtrack for an exhibition at Latrobe University Museum and Art Gallery, Melbourne, for the Contemporary Art Fair in 2010.
