“Charlize” original painting by Lynne Mettam.
Oil, Mixed media on Canvas,
30 x 40 x 2.5 cm
A fantasy mixed media artwork channelling the American actor Charlize Theron in the form of Fairy Godmother or
The Good Witch of the West with appropriate bling! Her features are very symmetrical and inspired by her lovely
calm face I was drawn to try a portrait of her ‐ and was quite pleased with the result.
My oil, acrylics and mixed media art and paintings are a reflection of how I see the world and also is a great way for me to relax!
I love colour and use it to as much advantage in my artwork as I can. Because I study creativity on all levels I have taken much
inspiration from many other sources and have added this to my artwork/collages over the thirty five years of my art making.
My artworks have been sold to buyers in Baltimore USA, New Guinea, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast and Perth in
Australia and also to Christchurch in New Zealand to name a few cities, and in the interim over many exhibitions from Cairns in
Queensland to Portsea in Victoria.
As another string to my creative bow I have also written and illustrated (in watercolour) two children’s books “The Bend in the
River,” in 1986 for Greenhouse Publications and “Mischief at Muddy Bend” in 1989 for Penguin Books. Both books were taken up
by Ashton’s Scholastics at the time of their publication, and so were included in all Primary School libraries in Australia and in our
National Libraries. I am now working on a sequel to these two books with illustrations in mixed media and acrylics.
