Lynne Reeves studied art at Southampton Collage of Art, followed by a teaching Degree at Portsmouth, Lynne worked as a designer for Cresta Silks followed by a freelance career in fashion specialising in weddings.
Enjoying experimenting with different types of media and techniques she incorporates paper collage and acrylic inks as a starting point. This allows her to create abstract structures which develop into random textures, colours, shapes enabling the painting. to evolve but still with referencing the subject. Working with a limited colour palette applying layers of acrylic paint and sometimes more collage and tissue paper, a semi abstract painting evolves from the chaos of the initial under painting.
Her work is inspired by life, people, places, the light and mood of the day, the warmth of the sun, the music of the sea, visits to Cornwall have especially been inspirational particularly the magic or St Ives deep with its past artistic history, harbour, cottages, cobbled narrow streets, galleries, working studios and of course The Light Of St Ives! And don't forget the Seagulls!
