"Things gather at the waters edge, including me."

Lynne Wixon is a painter who lives and works in Yorkshire in the north of England. She spends much of her time traveling the English coastline in search of architectural structures to use as inspiration for her paintings.

Wixon is spending some time in Brooklyn exploring its coastal areas and preparing for a new body of work.“I am drawn to the waters edge. It is not especially the sea that fascinates me but the architectural structures that have evolved through human activity and man’s connection with the sea.”

“I became interested in littoral structures after spending some time painting the beach houses north of San Francisco bay. I was fascinated by the eclectic constructions that had emerged on the beaches over time. I started the UK Coastal Tour in 2010 and have pretty much been working on it since then, it is probably a life time project. I usually spend a few weeks a year traveling to areas of the coast collecting visual information and working from it back in the studio for the rest of the year. I work in oil paint and water based mixed media.”

Wixon lives in the small coastal village of Robin Hood’s Bay, North Yorkshire but originates from the West Midlands and lived in Sheffield South Yorkshire for 30 years. She has taught art to University students and the general public, and runs classes for the local community from her Robin's Hood's Bay.

"I would not exactly describe myself as a landscape painter but maybe a painter of Engineering & Architecture in a landscape, usually on the coastline. It is not especially the sea that fascinates me but the structures that have evolved out of the human activity and mans connection with the sea."
