Lynne Wixon

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 work in oil paint and water based mixed media.”
