   Lyn Mellady

Lyn paints what she describes as the untamed beauty of our coast and inland.

Since 1981 Lyn has turned her multi talents to fine art.  By choice she now works almost exclusively in the pastel medium but will work in oil or with silver leaf if the subject needs it.  Each work has a focus based on her observation and the reality is subtly shifted to emphasise the painting’s purpose. This is to make her feeling of the subject more obvious.

Lyn has over 100 awards & commendations but now concentrates on gallery display.

Brialyn Boathouse Gallery

She  feels privileged to be part of the creative arts in Australia today and will bring her inside knowledge of the artist community to her gallery. She is determined to respect both the artist and their work as well as those who wish to share the artist’s vision, be it by viewing or purchase.
It is her aim to create both social and personal artistic enjoyment, knowledge and friendship and perhaps satisfy the personal need for both artist and collector of enjoyable acquisition.
