Lynne Brown is influenced by both her immediate surroundings, and, more generally by our beautiful New Zealand landscapes. “Having traveled overseas extensively over the past few years only reinforces my belief that we live in the most stunning country visually.”
Lynne Brown is mainly a self taught artist, who as a gallery owner for nine years soaked up others work, and helped to define the sort of artist that she would one day become. She was almost 50 before she approached painting seriously, taking 5 years to establish her style.
“I try to capture the feeling of a place rather than the real life depiction and I use mainly acrylics in many transluscent layers to capture the mood. Many of my paintings are started without a real vision of the completed work. I like the freedom of just putting the paint on and waiting for the painting to ‘speak’ to me.”
