Lyn Burns FRAS

Painting and drawing have always been a part of my life.  The majority of my works are landscapes, and many of the larger ones are somewhat sketchy - I like the drawing, the gesture and movement in the landscape.  The natural world provides my subject matter.  I tend to turn away from every part of the built environment to concentrate on the wild, the beautiful, or the quirky in the landscape.  The sea has always had a strong pull for me, and I draw the waves, the water’s edge and the expanses of the ocean.  Trees also provide wonderful shapes and lines - there are very few straight lines in my work, I like the twists and turns, the ins and outs.  Being in the landscape, drawing from nature, is what I most like to do.  I particularly like drawing with pastel, however using a variety of media has meant changes in style, experimentation and finding new ways of looking at things.

I am a Fellow of the Royal Art Society of NSW, a member of Lane Cove Art Society and weekend gallery manager at Lavender Bay Gallery.
