Unison Colour welcomes Lynn Howarth as an Associate Artist

A graduate of Grays School of Art, Aberdeen, Lynn Howarth worked in the Graphic Design industry until 2012 when she started to draw and paint full time committing fully to her art career in the summer of that year.

Since then, her work has steadily gained recognition with many galleries across Scotland stocking her vibrant work. She exhibits regularly in both solo and mixed shows and has won many awards including the Derwent/WH Smith sketch off prize and several awards from the Pastel Guild of Europe. Lynn has also had her work published in three art books; one on portraiture, one on pastels for which she wrote the foreword and a book on women in art. She has provided artworks for the covers of two books on open water swimming this year.

She works primarily in pastel and charcoal as she loves the immediacy and tactility of those mediums and her works are collected by international art collectors worldwide. Her subject matter varies but she finds she is particularly drawn to portraiture and figurative works due to her love of life drawing which was instilled during her time studying at Grays. She has recently returned to painting landscapes and enjoys the challenges presented when working en plein air.

She teaches several classes at Strathclyde Universitys Centre for Life Long Learning and also teaches a Purely Pastels class at a private art school in Glasgow and runs pastel workshops from her studio in Stepps, Glasgow. Lynn is also often asked to give demonstrations of pastel techniques at various art groups around Scotland and undertakes privately commissioned work.

For most of my life I assumed art was not for me, obviously I tried it at school, but I was never that good.
