Meet Lynne, the artist...
Lynne has been painting "Brixham Life" for the last 16 years after living abroad for two decades. "It was wonderful to return home and fall in love with this coast line and life all over again".
Self taught, she has always had a passion for painting, sensitive to shape and colour. A gift which she has developed into her own immediately recognisable style.
She prefers to paint 'en plein air' with her chosen view ahead, the sun on her back, a hat on her head and her sisters and a picnic at her side hoping her sheer pleasure is reflected in her paintings for all to enjoy.
For 12 years, Lynne displayed and sold her work at the weekly Brixham Art and Craft Market on the harbour-side. Four years ago she opened a Gallery to display her work along with those of her sister's paintings and the beautiful pebble work by their friend Vivienne . and dots herself around the harbour to paint 'en plein air' when inspired by a scene, be it atmospheric, colourful, exciting or humorous. "Brixham never fails to make me smile for all the right reasons and I can't wait to get them down on paper.
The Colours Of Brixham, Art Gallery and studio is at 48 Middle Street.
Her colourful and sometimes humorous approach conveys her love and angle on life.
Lynne Peets is renowned for her beautiful watercolour paintings and some 'expressions' in acrylic and oil.
