Bordering on the Wilderness a must for art lovers

ARTIST Lyne Marshall was pleased to see the rain did not put a dampener on her weekend art exhibition, with dozens of people travelling to Tallegalla to see her work.

Enthusiastic art lovers from all over south-east Queensland came to see her pieces on display at her home studio as part of her Bordering on the Wilderness exhibition.

More than 50 pieces, including some of her earlier works, were displayed across two rooms and her garden for people to view.

With a lifelong passion for painting, Ms Marshall said she found her inspiration in nature and the surrounding countryside.

"After many years of trying to find the right direction for myself, I found my true passion lies with the wilderness, the way nature erodes and then restores itself to its natural beauty," she said.

"I look at the land and see storms rolling in over the hills and amazing cloud structures, all of which inspire me.

"I take all of that in with pictures and sketches, so when I come to paint, I can draw back on that experience and let my art flow naturally.

"I also like to feature a lot of water in many of my paintings. I grew up near the water, so painting it takes me back to my childhood experiences."

Ms Marshall's journey from taking art as a hobby and transforming it into a career began when she enrolled into university in 1992.

After graduating, she spent more than 10 years finding her niche, a common struggle for many artists.

Drawing on her experience, Ms Marshall has also penned a number of books to help aspiring artists reach their artistic destination sooner than what she did.

"I want to help as many artists as possible find out what inspires them and help them find that passion," she said.

"For me, it took more than 10 years, but I want to help someone find their own creativity sooner."

In addition, Ms Marshall also holds art workshops for a more hands-on approach to teaching her talent to others.
