I am a visionary surrealist working with oil on board for many of my works;  also I create mixed media abstracts from using found objects.

About Me

From leaving school I ventured into the world of glass design and construction, gaining the qualification of a New Zealand Flat Glass Trade Certificate.

Having an artistic mindset led me to using the product to create an extensive range of designer glass works over the span of fifteen years.

Following the experience in the glass industry I returned to full time study for five years to gain a Diploma in Architectural Design and a Bachelor Degree in Applied Arts.

Academic study has given me a passion for modern technology. Coupling this passion with an understanding of the ancient product of glass, I am investigating the potential of glass in the sculptural field. Areas of focus at present are light reflection, refraction and projection.

I also enjoy drawing, painting, graphic design and photography.

About Me

I am hoping I can squeeze into being a member - despite being on the rim of the membership area - I live just out of Dunedin at Portobello. (But did my time teaching in Winton and teaching art at Longford Intermediate, Gore, many years ago so Southland always feel close to heart!)


In which area of visual arts are you involved?

I am primarily a printmaker and am attracted to working with processes that utilise light in the processing - photopolymer plate, cyanotypes, laser cutting and photostencil screenprinting. My art work is research based - usually with historical and nautical flavours. I teach alongside my making and some of my updates can be seen on my blog http://lynn-taylor.blogspot.com/  or facebook page http://www.facebook.com/lynntaylorartist
