Welcome to my Original Paintings & Abstract Art Works

Lyn Pettigrew - Scottish artist specialising in abstract art, acrylic pours and paintings

Art by Lyn is a showcase for original paintings and other works of art created with passion and enthusiasm by the Scottish artist Lyn Pettigrew.

This website is not only an on-line exhibition of some of my recent original paintings, it is also intended to help visitors choose abstract works of art that will enhance their homes, offices or workspaces. It will give you an insight into what fuels my passion and describes some of the materials and techniques that I use. It may even inspire you to have a go at creating your own art and reveal a hidden talent!

The picture below is one of my Acrylic Pours and there are many more to view in my on-line shop. I think Acrylic Pours, or as some people describe them, Fluid Art could be considered as unconventional abstract art. This is a relatively new way of creating an original painting using acrylics. One interesting point to make is that absolutely no two pours can ever be identical. This means that every pour is original and unique.

For those of you who have maybe just visited my website for the first time, here is a little bit of background about me:

I am based in Loanhead, just outside Edinburgh, and primarily create original paintings including Acrylic Paintings, Acrylic Pours and Watercolours on stretched canvas or canvas board. I often work with Mixed Media, using a variety of colours and textures to help bring maximum interest into my artwork. I enjoy exploring every corner of my mind and my heart which results in several different ideas being included in each painting. This, in turn, allows each person to see a wide variance of shapes, colours and messages within each piece.

My art is primarily intuitive and, as a result, each piece is very different. I have decided not to go down the route of having copies printed as I believe people prefer to feel and see the textures of original paintings. So, if you see one of my abstract paintings which resonates with you, it is 100% certain you will never see an original painting that is identical anywhere else in the world.

Unlike conventional art works, many of my original abstract acrylic paintings can look good upside down or in portrait instead of landscape. They are not totally restricted to a certain way of displaying, which again gives a sense of freedom to the owner as well as myself while I am painting.
