Lynne Wilkinson - biography

"I was born and educated in Sheffield, studying for four years at the Faculty of Art and Design on Psalter Lane obtaining a B A Honours Degree in Painting and Printmaking. Followed by a Post Graduate Certificate of Education in Teaching at the Collegiate Crescent site. I have taught in various local schools and at the Sheffield Mappin and Graves Art Galleries.

I now dedicate my time to my painting, and I exhibit in local shows, galleries, restaurants and shops, in both Sheffield and Derbyshire, winning various Competitions throughout the UK over the years.

I am a member of Peak District Products a Derbyshire based group of professional fellow artists who I share shows, exhibitions, ideas and exchange of views.

My studio based at Summerley near Dronfield, this tranquil rural environment has provided my artistic stimulation and inspiration with the opportunity to study my subjects on a daily basis at close quarters.

I work directly on the canvas, I do not sketch out a plan, my pictures evolve in a similar way to arranging a pile of furniture in a room, ultimately everything has it place. I make mistakes along the way, and make adjustments, but this is all part of the process of how I paint.
Completing a picture gives me a real buzz, but parting with it can be difficult. But there's no greater compliment when somebody buys my work and takes it into their home." - Lynne Wilkinson
