Oil on Canvas
Over a 30 year career she has become one of Britains most respected land and seascape painters, and her subtle shades and distinctive textures have led to a highly recognisable style which has won her both critical and popular acclaim. Her work has been exhibited all over the country in galleries and exhibitions including a one-woman show at The Barbican, The Festival Hall and The West of England Art Academy. Winner of the Civic Award for Services to the Arts, she has also come to the notice of many collectors around the world including Olympic swimmer and TV presenter Sharron Davies, and her work has been shown in Selfridges, Libertys and The Excell Centre.
In her early career Lynne was heavily influenced by the work of Turner, then by Andrew Wyeth, Kathryn Thomas and Dion Salvador Lloyd, and her current artistic muse is American photographer Ansell Adams. Her style and subject matter has evolved over the years, shifting alongside her life experiences and changing artistic interests, but she has resolved never to be swayed by trends or fashion which are transient, but to remain true to her own creative journey, wherever it may lead.
This journey has indeed been a voyage of artistic discovery. Visiting the Maldives inspired a series of exotic seascapes, and the Balaeric and Greek Islands also provided some extraordinary sunlit images, while in stark contrast, a visit to Oslo offered an atmospheric skyline heavy with mist and diffused light. At present she is absorbed with land and seascapes that tend towards the minimal, but finds herself leaning towards a more abstract style on occasion; she enjoys expressing herself with what she describes as less detail and greater impact.
