Lynette Kay studied with Charles Howard at the Froebel Institute, University of London and was offered a place at the Royal College of Art. Her painting draws on a profound interest in the connections between music, colour, shape and texture in the environment.

Lynette  was brought up in Formby and spent her childhood beside the sea and is now based in Oxfordshire but has lived, travelled and exhibited around the world.  Her work is influenced by Picasso and Renoir as well as Inuit Art in Canada and Tribal Art in South Africa. In recent years her work has been greatly influenced by John Hoyland, Cy Twombly, Richard Kidd and Gerhard Richter.

Lynette Kay’s paintings are often concerned with how the paint is applied and reacts with different media. The base is treated in various ways – materials are applied in an unconventional manner and paints are mixed to allow colour separation when dry. Recent work is larger and on unprimed cotton duck with acrylics.
