Award winning painter Lyn Beckett was born and grew up in Sheffield,Yorkshire. After studying Fine Art (painting and printmaking) in Hull she graduated in 1992.

Later she moved to the North West Highlands of Scotland where she lived and worked, both painting and running her own Solas Gallery for over 20 yrs. with fellow artist Rob Howard.

Lyn Beckett's paintings explore disparate elements in nature and still life composition but are not rooted in time or place. Contrasting elements in colour and image juxtapose to express unusual and vibrant harmonies, qualities which themselves become the subject of the work. Her work has been shown at major galleries and more recently larger pieces commissioned by private collectors.
