I’m Lynne, painter, photographer and mental health advocate.

Why do I Paint?

Painting is incredibly soothing for me and all comes from my connection to the natural world. I am a big believer in healing from immersion in the natural world.  I love the atmospherics of a place and capturing these on canvas.  For example, I love to see my breath revealed on an icy cold day as it suddenly appears before me, reflections or shadows of trees and foliage and visually depicting birdsong. I love the morning chorus at dawn, the splash on a lake with its mystery depths below and fog lifting from the trees. I use natural materials such as plants, twigs and thistles to apply paint, which further strengthens this link.

Painting intuitively is definitely best!  I trust my ‘ sixth sense’ to make marks in my painting to bring out the unexpected, the surprising, the hidden.   I use many paint layers to create texture, building wet onto dry paint, scratching through, erasing adding organic material.

My life is enriched so much through my painting. It gives me life and confidence. The more I explore, the better my work becomes and the more joy I get from it.

  • I recently purchased three beautiful watercolours from lynne which I chose from her website.  Summer Lake, Twisted and It’s Autumn. It is a pleasure to work with her and the paintings were well packed and arrived in good time to the USA. I also think they are very reasonably priced and continue to follow her website. Gillian
  • Lynne’s art is beautiful!I fell in love with her watercolors and bought one recently. I live in Seattle and was concerned with having it mailed to me. I need not have!. It was securely packed and arrived promptly. Price was fair and its beautiful. Glen
