The Blushious series captures the beauty of local garden flowers found in Lynch’s inner Sydney neighbourhood. Each flower has been swept up into her collection of glass and ceramic vases to create these contemporary still-life works. Enjoy!
About the Artist
I am a multidisciplinary artist, working both as a designer and visual artist. I work in sunny Sydney, Australia. I am fortunate to have beautiful nature, waterways and wildlife in my inner-city neighbourhood where inspiration surrounds me.
I work in oils, acrylics and collage. My work explores nature and the human-made and how these elements intertwine. My paintings are informed by the wild nature that flourishes in my garden and the gardens, parks and streets of my neighbourhood – and if it can’t be found nearby, I love to travel to find inspiration.
I have loved drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, I draw and paint every day – studying nature provides me with an endless supply of ideas and inspiration; spending large chunks of time observing is key to the work of a costume designer and a visual artist. It is a gift to be able to focus in on our everyday life and find the beauty, the cracks and the layers of living.
I adore pattern and colour – and I especially enjoy working in limited and unusual colour combinations. I have always loved texture – whether it is in impasto or collage layers, there will always be a sense of texture, pattern and depth in my work. I love to respond intuitively to what the paint, shapes and lines are doing on the canvas – I thrive on the surprises and the challenges of work unfolding spontaneously.
My studio is home to my favourite things; every kind of paint, a multitude of brushes, vintage vases, textile swatches, and object d-art. I salvage anything that might be a future inspiration.
Selling a painting is a huge honour. I will never tire of the thrill it gives me – knowing that my work will be bringing someone else pleasure, is such a gift.
