Lyn Hewitson- Artist

The Rural Business Community are delighted to announce that international artist Lyn Hewitson will be displaying a selection of work here in September 2012.

Lyn Hewitson was born in the mid ’50’s’ and grew up in the North Island of New Zealand, where her love of the natural landscape began. Travel and family commitments meant limited time to develop as an artist while studying art and design in the UK and NZ.

The new millennium and relocation to the Waikato Region of New Zealand lead to the establishment of a multi-award winning Gallery. Over the following years she hosted a Regional Arts television Show, along with exhibition organisation, judging, mentoring, tutoring and public speaking on arts related subjects.

From 2004 a refocus on her own arts career resulted in extensive travel including artist residencies/exchanges and exhibitions in Italy, Germany and the UK.

In 2009 the artist married and settled in a small, picturesque village in the Midlands region of the UK, and is now able to concentrate on her painting practice and landscape photography.

Sales and commissions have ensured her work is in private and corporate collections worldwide, under her previous signature of Lynnie J and now as Lyn Hewitson.

“As a New Zealand artist living in the UK, my artwork is inevitably influenced by my antipodean roots, which brings a point of difference to my landscape observations. The palette and natural light of the two hemispheres are quite different and, as an observer of the natural landscape, spending time in both NZ and the UK undoubtedly offers the best of both worlds in terms of inspirational subject matter”.
