Lynne-Marie Eatwell (born in 1982, Johannesburg, South Africa) is a classical/contemporary figurative artist. Working primarily in oils, her provocative use of movement and light, or “Movement within Light” as she says, is combined with painterly brushstrokes creating vibrant energy in her work. Over the years, Lynne has used her love for travel and fascination with traditional cultures from around the world as the main focus of her work. In a rapidly modernizing world, Lynne is motivated to portray those cultures that still live traditionally and close to nature. She uses portraiture not only to put an individual face to an otherwise obscure nation, but also as a means of understanding the uniting factors between individuals, no matter the contrast of cultural backgrounds. She says, “In every place and in every face, I will find a piece of myself.
