Artists Lynn Muir


Lynn's figures are made mainly from driftwood collected from her local beaches. The wood is transformed using a band saw, sanding machine, hand tools and acrylic paint - each one evolving to tell their own story.

Lynn trained as an illustrator at Colchester School of Art. The first part of her career was spent in East Anglia as a designer of theatre and retail props. This was where she first started to use wood.

She had a ten-year break from her career to bring up her three children.

In 1986 - 7 she began working with wood again, establishing her workshop which overlooks the Atlantic, an ideal location for collecting the driftwood with which she makes the painted driftwood figures.

She received the 'Toymaker of the Year' award in 1994 and is on the Crafts Council selected list of makers. She has exhibited throughout the country and regularly at Chelsea Crafts Fair.
