Living on a mountain range at Tallegalla for over 30 years allowed Lyne the emotional freedom and energy to work directly from nature. Since moving and working in her new studio at Ningi she is closer to the sea and her childhood home of Bribie Island.
Exploration remains a huge part of her art process. While using a variety of materials and processes Lyne is predominantly a painter using acrylics. Travelling allows her to find examples of the unexpected in all corners of Australia. Lyne’s art is not about localities but rather about the emotional experiences encountered. She is wanting the viewer to walk with her to find these unexplored territories.
Lyne has been influenced over the years by many artists including Chinese /French artist Zao Wou-Ki . This has increased her interest in producing art that has a spiritual reflective aspect and leans towards a more abstract interpretation of the landscape.
Since completing a Bachelor of Visual Arts in 1994, at USQ in Toowoomba Qld, Lyne has exhibited in over 40 solo exhibitions in Australia, USA, China, Japan, Hong Kong and New Zealand as well as many mixed exhibitions. Lyne has also written, illustrated and published four books on creative processes which support and encourage others on a similar artistic journey and given many workshops based around these books. These books are all available at Yallingup Galleries.
Lyne’s work is in many private and business collections and in several major regional galleries. In the past she has had exhibitions in galleries across Australia.
