Lynda's deeply expressive innerscapes are a mix of vibrant light and color which transcend to peace and grace deep below the surface.
Her unique vision sees the sea and sky intertwine, casting a dream-like state over the viewer. They are delicately balanced in power and compassion, beauty and strength. The luminosity and warm sensuality of Lynda's intuitive style is seducing.
"The purpose of art is to arouse emotion, the sea is emotion incarnate," says Lynda.
Exploring the expression of her inner state of being, she hopes to offer a bridge into yours. Her spontaneous and subconscious creations aim to awaken and inspire.
"For me art is about emotion. Art is transformal. It can profoundly change the way you feel. It takes us into our inner world, the world of visions and feelings, it's a journey inwards." says Lynda.
“The tradition of Abstract Expressionism and Color Field painting can be seen in Howitt’s work. The sense of chromatic nuance, subtle gesture and lyricism makes her compositions exhilarating. There is an openness to them that creates an extraordinary resonance.”
Byron Coleman, Gallery & Studio Magazine
Born the only white child in a mission hospital in Uganda, her family fled the Idi Amin massacre to the shores of Australia. An idyllic childhood growing up on the beach set the scene for her life-long love of the ocean. Her affinity with nature and the sense of light and space has been instilled from an early age and continues to be a guiding influence on her work.
With a Degree in Arts and a highly successful career as a Creative Director in London and Sydney she now resides in the USA. She devotes all her time to painting with her works hanging in homes around the world.
Her stormy beginning suggests her deep gratitude for peace and serenity that her paintings convey so successfully to the viewer.
Lynda is represented in New York by June Bateman Fine Art.
