Artist set to showcase work at Lichfield Cathedral

Violet-vellumAn exhibition of botanical pictures and landscapes is set to go in display in Lichfield Cathedral.

The ArtReach event is set to showcase the work of Lynne Broberg and will run from May 1 to 14.

Lynne is one of Staffordshire’s best known artists, recognised worldwide for her highly detailed and vibrant botanical pictures and landscapes. Her intricate paintings of flowers and fruits are painted directly from life with no preparatory drawing, often using a magnifying glass and single hair brush.

Her rural scenes in pencil draw inspiration from the contrasting landscapes and hill farms of her childhood in Wales and life in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside.

She said:

“I like to capture the way flowers move and turn to the light and to show the parts often not  noticed, the backs of leaves and flowers, buds and seeds, the dying flower – it too has a beauty. The effervescence and cycle of life is all there.”
