Lynne Butt

profile

Lynne is an artist currently working on paper, canvas and sometimes fabric. She has experience in a variety of crafts including pottery, fabric printing and painting, knitting, collage and crochet.

Inspiration comes from many sources including landscapes, pots and vessels, reflections in glass and water as well as the built environment, with colour and textures playing  important roles.

Lynne is always on the look out for new materials, techniques and ideas for using the many tools she has collected over the years. She is also keen to develop her observational skills through drawing, using sketchbooks for recording and experimenting. This all comes together in work that is varied and exciting.
