Lynne Cartlidge

Perhaps you share my love of painting and for art generally.


For me, it started in childhood when I felt strongly that I would be an artist.


I was born in Wellington, New Zealand in 1964 and moved to Cornwall at the age of three when my family returned to the UK. I did my Foundation Diploma in Art at Falmouth Art School and then a Degree in Fine Art at Cardiff College of Art.


I have been settled in Wales for nearly 40 years. In 2017 I was elected a member of the Royal Cambrian Academy for the Arts in Wales.


My still life and flower paintings can be seen at various galleries from Cornwall to Hampshire.


I mostly paint at my home studio in Cardiff. My studio was once an Edwardian shop and we have retained the beautiful stained glass shop windows while I have created shutters for privacy and to control the light.


Sometimes I am away from the studio. I regularly take my paints to Cornwall when visiting my mother and on other trips, sometimes to rural Wales.


I am a keen gardener and grow flowers, which feature in my paintings, both in our courtyard garden and my allotment in Cardiff.


I’m fortunate to have relationships with galleries built up over several years. Links can be found on my Gallery page. You are also welcome to contact me directly. There are usually some works listed in my website store. Please contact me by email if you’d like to arrange a viewing.
