Story and myth are important influences in Lyn Hodnett’s work. Her paintings and prints suggest both a personal and universal narrative and are influenced by religions, mythology, fairytale and folklore. She uses acrylic paint on paper or board, combined with layers of charcoal, varnish and mixed media. Printmaking is also an important part of her art practice and Lino-cuts, collagraph and mono prints have always progressed along-side of her paintings.
A free-lance artist since 1986, she is also an Associate Lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University and teaches A ‘level Art at Thomas Rotherham College.
