Fine Artist ~ Creating visual harmony for your life ~
About The Art. Lynette Melnyk creates soulful paintings that connect with people’s emotions. As a contemporary artist, Lynette’s abstract expressionist style is created from her interpretation of nature, dance and music. The curvaceous strokes and fluid movements in her work are representative of an elegant strength found in nature. Her paintings help the viewer take a deeper look into their own winding and personal journey of life. The results are serendipitous, spiritual, enriching, and joyful.
“My artwork is a continuation of my personal growth. More confidence and more trust in myself to take more leaps and be bold. Maybe it was in me all along and suppressed, but I now have an edgy aspect in my art that is flowing out onto canvases in expressive movements when I dance and listen to music.”
Lynette’s goal is to engage and inspire viewers to find a little more connection in their life. To connect through the captivating flow of movements, the masterful use of colour palettes and the depth of layers in her work. Her art communicates a meaningful authenticity and a passion to encourage emotions and conversations. Emotions to help people be bold and fearless, believe in themselves, and live out loud!
