Lynne Forrester works mainly in soft pastels and oil paints to specialise in velvety-soft seascapes and cloudscapes inspired by the beautiful scenery on the Isle of Skye in the Hebrides.
Originally from Northamptonshire, Lynne lived in several locations around the UK before choosing to live and work on Skye to pursue her art career whilst surrounded by the part of the world that moves her to paint from the heart.
Lynne’s initial art training took place at the School of Art, University of Wales, Aberystwyth following her BA(hons) in Cultural Studies at the University of East London. She then continued her studies in Aberystwyth to gain a MA in Literary Studies. Since then, she has worked in seemingly unartistic professions but always managed to weave creative elements through them, whether working in an office or pharmaceutical sales. Lynne has continued to study and practice drawing and painting over the years, being privileged to work with incredibly talented teachers and artists.
After exhibiting in both solo and group Wiltshire-based shows, Lynne has her own permanent solo exhibition space at Lynne’s Art Shed in Waternish, Isle of Skye and continues to work in soft pastels and oil paints to create atmospheric cloudscapes and seascapes. She is delighted to be featured in the 'Skye Makers' magazine and gallery and in a recent mini-documentary for Catalan TV.
