Lynsey Cleaver Artist
Wren in hedgerow
Storm at Godrevy Point
Taking inspiration from my surroundings and the natural world, no matter how ordinary, I aim to create images that exalt the simple, often uncelebrated aspects of nature; common garden birds, hedgerows, grass verges, small wooded areas. I create the works by combining a variety of techniques in the same piece using painting, print making and drawing and sometimes collage to create decorative portraits of the common place in nature. I also enjoy painting the effects of tumultuous weather on the British landscape.
My inspiration comes from my immediate surroundings and nature. I am fascinated by anything where the ordinary is made extraordinary.
I work mostly in acrylic and watercolour pencils on paper, canvas or board, alongside mono print and Lino print and occasionally screen printing.
