Lynne Mettam

Although not a “native” of Perth I have lived in the West now since 1993. I am mainly a self-taught artist of 30 years experience, gathering inspiration from life, animals and art from all genres – both modern and ancient. Over the years I have been inspired by Picasso and Modigliani – my two favourite Impressionists and very well supported in all aspects of my endeavours by my husband Brad who makes frames for my work and encourages my art at every turn. Although I paint mainly in oil I enjoy using acrylics and mixed media and have also worked in watercolour when I wrote, illustrated and published two books for children – “The Bend in the River” and “Mischief at Muddy Bend” in 1987 and 1989 respectively for Greenhouse and Penguin Publications. Since moving to Perth’s northern suburbs I have exhibited and sold paintings locally, interstate and to international buyers.Although not a “native” of Perth I have lived in the West now since 1993.
