She now lives in relative isolation on a mountain range, with the bush as a backdrop. The view from her verandah spans across the valley to the horizon beyond and after 20 years it is surfacing in her paintings. These are inner landscapes that attempt to explore and capture the beauty and design that is intrinsic in nature but also left in the objects we place there. They depict places of mystery which show nature's details through many perspectives. Find out more about Lyne and her book on
