All a Flutter at ARTastic!


It is March already!!     The year is flying away..just like these gorgeous birdies..

Lyn Butchart "Bluebirds"

Lyn Butchart draws her inspiration from the vibrant, textural and ethereal spirit of nature.
Born in 1951 in Manildra NSW of Aboriginal Irish Swedish descent, Lyn has developed a unique individual style ranging from contemporary to abstract. Her fascination with the ocean inspires intricate underwater scenes, a theme she is renowned for.  She undertakes extremely large works on paper, some of the largest in Australia, and incorporates strong vibrant colours that bring harmony and balance to her paintings.  Lyn is a self taught artist with over 25 years tutoring experience. She has participated in many solo and group exhibitions, and her work is held in private and corporate collections worldwide. Her work has also been featured in numerous national art magazines featuring watercolour and mixed media works.  Lyn lives and works in Grafton northern New South Wales, and travels frequently to conduct workshops in regional areas around Australia.

So this is the challenge over at ARTastic this month..isn't it heavenly!!
