Was born on 21 October 1982 in Johannesburg, South Africa, Lynne is a young painter with exceptional talent. Her expression of light and movement are amongst the most provocative features of her paintings. Working in oils, both from life and references, she is focused on capturing the inner life and essence of her subject, portraying the honesty of what she perceives. She works fast and accurately using bold pallet strokes and loose brushwork. Having an appetite for travel she has spent a great deal of her time painting on location in remote destinations throughout South Africa and the world. She has spent a great deal of time exploring the art scene in Los Angeles, U.S.A. taking part in various group exhibitions as well as training with some of the local artist. Lynne is currently studying classical drawing at the “Florence Academy of Art” in Italy. From 1996 to 1999 she attended the “National School of the Arts” in Johannesburg, where she achieved some of the highest accolades for art. She has since gathered valuable experience learning from the example of her older brother and artist, Eric Oswald Eatwell, as well as through extensive self-study. She began selling her paintings through a prominent art dealer, Michael John Write, at the age of 16, which helped solidify her dream of becoming a full time painter. After graduating she moved to Cape Town with her family. In 2001 she opened “The Eatwell Gallery”. A very successful and highly regarded gallery/studio dedicated solely to exhibiting the work of the Eatwell family, allowing members of the public the opportunity to see the artists at work. She is interested in painting figurative work, portraiture, as well as nautical scenes and landscapes and has been mostly influenced by: “the Impressionists,” John Singer Sargent, Joaquin Sorolla, Vincent Van Gogh, as well as some more modern painters like Lucian Freud, Peter Diog, David A. Leffel, the teachings of Robert Henri and many more. Lynne’s work has found a ready home in many local and international collections. Her skill and popularity continues to grow. She is currently represented by Carmel Art, a prominent gallery in Cape Town, as well as having representation in Dubai and now in America.
