About Lynne

Lynne is a Chichester-based artist and tutor whose work combines a fascination for architecture, landscapes and unusual forms found in the everyday world.  Her preferred media are watercolour and pen and ink.  Her work in all media reflects her love of strong lines and shapes.

Lynne is a professional artist and tutor. She runs workshops and gives talks to art societies across southern England. The workshops focus on book making and mount cutting. Her talks focus on two subjects; the effective presentation of art, and the history and fascinating story of colour in art.

Having worked as a professional painter since 1992 Lynne quickly learnt how important it is to present work to the highest standards. She runs workshops in mount cutting (using a handheld mount cutter) in Chichester and at The Maltings in Farnham.

Lynne has always loved making things and has developed one-day workshops in making leather journals, these combine simple bookbinding and leather working skills. They’ve been very popular and a follow-up workshop has now been added to her programme, as well as a workshop on Japanese Book Making.

At the moment she has become fascinated with concertina bindings and the variety of folding techniques which can be used to make them.  Eventually this might become another workshop, hopefully before she disappears under a sea of folded paper.

She is an experienced tutor having spent seven years teaching workshops for West Sussex County Council.
