ARTist Lyn Hewitson 


Thank you for visiting my website .


 I returned to New Zealand in late 2017 after retiring from the role of Artist in Residence at the Northamptonshire (UK) Kettering Buccleuch Academy .

Experiencing the rich cultural and artistic history of  Europe and specifically time spent in  Italy & Germany has had an influence on my painting.

My artistic life has enriched my life in ways I could never have forseen

I have met unforgettable people and seen incredible places , each experience has contributed to who I have become as person and  artist


...I am forever grateful 





 I continue to develop

a range  of Steampunk Inspired Drawings presented in a variety of formats 


Art Blocks  are designed to either  free- stand or hang on the wall 


There are three equine  wallmounted

'cut outs' range 


A life sized paper mache horse detailed with 70+ drawings and taking around 120 hours to create was the feature display of the 2019 Steampunk Exhibition held in Riverton, Southland NZ 


These  highly detailed studies are

a combination  of my continued interest in the drawing process ... and imagination 









I am currently working on a series of paintings  which I have called


'View from the Flight Deck '


offering a unique perspctive on the spectacular high country landscape seen from regular flights around the country . 



This latest paintings is a loose pallette knife work showing the view above one of  the famous South Island braided rivers 

Please click on Current Year  2019 to see the latest from the Southland Studio 






The subject matter for my paintings is heavily infuenced by my environment and it is impossible to be back in New Zealand and not to respond to the incredible natural beauty of this country .


Equally the influences of European architecture and beauty of the english countryside  remains a strong influence and the mix of paintings I produce shows this .


I am planning a major exhibition in the future .
