My art career has now spanned 40 years and my enjoyment of making art has never wavered. My paintings reflect how I see the world, and over the years I have not taken any particular track or style but have experimented with all mediums as I go along. I take much inspiration from other sources, like the Impressionists, the Renaissance greats, and our modern Australian artists, especially Ainsley Roberts.
I studied oil painting technique in the small classes of Victorian Artist Robert Cue when living in the country town of Swan Hill, but I am mostly self-taught. I am also now working with mixed media, adding fabrics, glass and found objects to bring texture and interest to my work in oils and acrylics, mono printing, and inks.
I have participated and sold work in many community and solo exhibitions in Perth metro and satellite areas. Many paintings have also been sold to overseas buyers. I have had a long and wonderful association with The Artisan Store in Fremantle since its inception and it continues to be a wonderworld for all lovers of craft in Perth.
Wearing my other hat as an author and (watercolour) illustrator I have written and illustrated two children’s books, – “The Bend in the River,” (1986, Greenhouse) and “Mischief at Muddy Bend” (1989, Penguin), under the name of Lynne Taylor. Each book was taken up by Ashton’s Scholastics Primary School Book Club and my books can still be found in all National Galleries in Australia.
