Hello! I’m Lynn; artist, nature lover and pattern enthusiast. Originally from Ireland, I grew up surrounded by forests, mountains, stunning European fabrics and interior design. I met my husband at work on a building site where we covered walls in beautiful silk fabric at His Highness the Aga Khan’s Stud Farm near Dublin. Since then we’ve travelled the world raising our 3 kids and I’ve been lucky to have exhibited and sold my decorative botanical designs and landscape paintings internationally for Wall Decor Licensing, Gallery exhibitions and private commissions.
In 2014 we settled in Adelaide. Over the last few years I’ve been exploring my local conservation park and documenting the ancient pink rolling hills and walkways. I love playing with colour combinations I see around me from the turquoise seas and skies, dusty pink rocks to the rich greens, ochres and navy blues of the coastal scrublands.
Using my favourite tiny brushes, I paint with acrylic or oil paints on canvas to document the intricate patterns of grass seeds and native shrubs that I see when getting out and about into nature with my family. We take endless photographs then I hoard bottles with grass cuttings, leaves and succulents on my studio table that I refer to for inspiration for still life and landscape paintings at a later stage. Art has become a way for me to document my surroundings painting by painting and I’m excited to share my discoveries of a stunning Adeladean Landscape with you.
