Lyn Mellady, A.G.R.A.

Lyn Mellady is past President of the Australian Guild of Realist Artists (A.G.R.A.) a member, of the Pastel Society of Victoria and "Brushmen of the Bay". While her personal painting is her highest priority, she is constantly asked to teach, judge art shows and has professionally demonstrated her techniques to many hundreds of artists.

Lyn Mellady has many awards for both pastel and oil. Her paintings have been acquired for Sutherland, Campbelltown, Frankston, Susomo and Nagoya (Japan) government collections.Her work is featured in Australian art reference books, as well as local and international art publications.

Her main love is the language of water in the landscape. But as a member of Fusion Six she has produced a 'not for sale' series of paintings that are now touring Australia's Regional Galleries. Fusion Six are presently working on their next collabaration which should be completed by 2011.

Lyn was born in Quirindi, NSW and grew up in Sydney’s Cronulla beach areas. She has taught ballet ARAD, became a primary school teacher, then consultant art teacher. Her own artwork emerged and it has become her chosen occupation since 1981. Today she relishes the challenge of combining spontaneity with careful technique.
After being finalist in the first International Pastel Excellence Art Landscape Awards, Lyn was asked to share her painting thoughts which appear in the Autumn Pastel International Magazine no 14,2002. She is featured in four art reference books and many art magazines. Four paintings are in print. There is a limited edition series of graphite drawings of Sydney. Five works have been acquired for government collections and her paintings are in corporate and private collections on all continents. She is a councillor of the Australian Guild of Realist Artists and member of Pastel Artists of Victoria ( where she has been a major prizewinner in their annual exhibition 5 times in 6 years). Lyn exhibits at Flinders and Sorrento Fine Art Galleries on the Mornington Peninsula.
