Fine Artist ~ Creating visual harmony for your life ~
Bio. Lynette has been involved in creative endeavours throughout her life, with formal education in interior design, visual communication design, photography and painting. She owned and operated a successful design, marketing and corporate communications business for over 20 years and continues to evolve the creative communication process through her art.
When not in the studio, Lynette enjoys travel and nature. Listening to music enlightens her soul. “When travelling, I find myself drawn to the history and magic of the art and architecture that has survived the test of time. It inspires and provides creative energy. Once I turn on the music, I find myself drawn back to those motivational forces which I channel onto the canvas.”
You can also follow her process on Instagram and Facebook.
About The Art. Lynette Melnyk creates paintings that add visual harmony to a space that soothes the soul. As a contemporary abstract artist, Lynette’s abstract expressionist style is created from her interpretation of nature, dance and music. Her work is like painting music, which may explain her multiple artistic styles from the energetic and lyrical bold abstracts to the romantic organic style. Music itself is abstract, and these musical influences appear on Lynette’s canvases through lyrical strokes and movements. The layers and layers create so much depth to her work. Her art communicates a meaningful authenticity and a passion to encourage emotions and conversations. It is soulful, spiritual, enriching, and brings joy. Her goal is to engage and inspire viewers through the captivating flow of movements, masterful colour palettes and unexpected whimsy.
