Artist Statement

I’m fascinated in painting as a visual language that speaks in metaphors as poetry does for the language of words. As a still life painter one is always on the lookout for subject matter that ‘speaks’ whilst being aware that the creative process involves many small steps which often occur quite unselfconsciously. There is no hierarchy regarding subject matter and quality of light is always vital.


Lynne Cartlidge RCA was born in 1964 in Wellington, New Zealand and grew up in Cornwall when her family returned to the UK in 1967.

She studied art at Falmouth Art College and then Cardiff Art College attaining a BA (Hons) Fine Art degree in 1987 when one of her figurative paintings was selected for the Whitworth Young Contemporaries.

Lynne has lived in Wales since 1987 and retains strong links with Cornwall.

She was elected a member of the Royal Cambrian Academy for the Arts in 2017 and she joined the Portscatho Arts Society, by invitation, in 2020.
