Cherry Lyons Local Creative Artist

Inspired by the rich
tapestry of colour-drenched textures, the unique light of the South West coast and country landscapes, her passion for making and sharing art is motivated by this welter of natural beauty and the endless painting opportunities, particularly the excitement of sketching and painting en plein air come rain or shine. When faced with constantly changing weather and a rugged landscape, the air magnifies colours and reveals nature in all its glory.

“Although watercolour has been my favourite media, I am constantly challenged by experimentation and love to mix media and techniques to recreate the textural qualities of the landscape or capture an essence of place, emotion or memory. My researches into the ancient art of encaustics lead to an exciting new collection of encaustic wax paintings launching in July 2018”

Back home in the studio, working in a range of media (watercolour, oils, acrylics, pastels, mixed media and encaustic) is often necessary to fully respond to the unending source of inspiration recorded in sketchbooks and on camera. Subjects are uniquely painted with originality whatever media is chosen. Exhibiting widely, taking part in the televised Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year 2015, 2016 and 201* and being selected as one of 6 finalists in the Devon Life Landscape Painter of the Year 2016 have been exciting achievements.
