About Amanda Lynne

My paintings are a celebration of the beauty of the natural world. I have always felt a strong connection with plants and animals, and have been fascinated by the intense beauty they possess. I strive to share this love with my audience by observing deeply, and painting images that joyfully explore the color, forms and patterns that natural objects have to offer.

My process begins with a digital single lens reflex camera, often with a macro lens. My camera comes with me to all the beautiful places that I visit. As I have delved into macro nature photography I have become completely enamored with the incredible life in action that can be observed when we take the time to look closely.

The second part of my process involves collecting discarded wooden furniture, which I disassemble and use as my canvas. This process is referred to as upcycling, the process of re-using an object for a higher purpose. So, the object does not continue to be a piece of furniture, but becomes an artist's canvas. Table tops, drawer fronts, and headboards are my preferred canvases.

The process culminates in the pairing of photographs with canvas. The preparation of the canvas is a labor of love. Disassembling the furniture, sanding, filling holes and applying gesso serve as a preliminary routine throughout which the creative ideas flow and develop. When that part of the process is completed, subject matter is transferred to the canvas and acrylic paints are used to create a celebration of color and beauty.

A note about the dots: The Aboriginal Papunya Dot Paintings of Australia were the original influence for the dots. In Papunya Dot Paintings the dots form the images. I choose to paint my images in a realistic style, out of reverence for nature's beauty, and then use dots in the background to add an element of fantasy. I find that the dots are very effective in depicting the blurry background of a photograph.
