Artworks by Lyn Dyson

Over the last decade my focus has switched from painting to quiltmaking which I aproach as an artist. Selecting fabrics for a quilt gives me the same buzz that a painter gets from the smell of oil-paints. Finding fabric motifs that trigger memories of art eras, design forms or artists inspires most of my quilts.
Quiltmaking provides an opportunity to create a finished article that is unique. I have an extensive collection of found fabrics to use in this process.
I was born in the Waikato where, in my early teens, I had lessons in oil-painting from my Aunt (Violet Watson), an accomplished Waikato artist. I later lived in Vienna for 28 years, where I completed a 2 year art diploma and visited most of the major museums and galleries in Europe. I returned to NZ in 1996 to settle on the Hibiscus Coast.
