Lyn Beaumont

From Lyn: I am professional artist living on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia.

I have a passion for painting horses, being a horse lover and owner all my life. I currently have three, one of which I have trained myself. With this experience I feel that I have a good knowledge of horse anatomy and an understanding of the horse itself. I paint other animals also, accepting commissions for dogs, cats and cattle.

I am also a painter of landscapes and pursue the feeling of Australia’s past, old buildings of gold rush days, old homes, railway stations now quiet, rural settings and ordinary everyday scenes of people going on about their business.

Oil is the medium that I prefer as it lends itself most successfully to a strength, but also a softness which I like to achieve in my work, particularly in horses.

My work hangs in galleries and private collections in both Australia and overseas.
