Lyn's lifelong love of drawing and painting ler her to a degree in textiles from Manchester Metropolitan University. After teaching textiles for many years, she now paints landscapes, flowers and quirky animals using different techniques and materials. She enjoys experimenting with watercolour, pastel and collage using found and painted papers. It is the exciting use of colour that spurs her on to paint. She loves the unusual effects that are created when colours and techniques are blended together. She lives close to Stanage Edge, and it is from this beautiful landscape that she draws her inspiration using the changing colours, textures and shifting light to paint colourful and exciting pictures.
