Mary-Lynne is an award winning artist and has lived in the Yallingup hills for 37 years. She holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts degree from Edith Cowan University. Her paintings are interpretations of the landscape around her and in northern parts of Australia. She spends time travelling and painting plein air in gouache in remote areas absorbing and connecting deeply with our ancient landscape.

Mary-Lynne says... "The randomness of tilting and folding rocks with their jewel like qualities as well as our scrubby bushlands and waterhole reflections provide fertile material to respond to. Once back in the studio, the plein air works are reimagined to become a playful framework to interpret colour, form and mark making in oils. I'm open to the possibilities of what the work can become, never quite knowing what the outcome will be I allow the painting to evolve slowly and intuitively, drawing on memory and the emotional experience felt in a particular place. I always challenge myself to look at the landscape in a new way so layering, lyricism, as well as uncertainty are very much a part of the way my work develops. I love to explore surprise juxtapositions of colour and transparency and am always open to change.
Accepting mistakes and failures, as well as the unexpected positive consequences feeds my practice.
