Lynn Muir is an established British maker, trained in illustration, who has worked making her figures in driftwood from her workshop at her home in a village overlooking the Atlantic in North Cornwall since 1980.
Lynn works with machine saws, powered sander wheel and hand tools. She often feels she uses the blade of her saw on wood like a pencil on paper and then 'illustrates' it with pen and paint.
Lynn's work is difficult to categorise but she thinks of it as illustrating in the 3-dimensional, the figures suggesting a story to the viewer. They are also incorporated onto her decorated boxes and wall pieces, the subject matter not usually associated with driftwood.
Lynn sells and has exhibited mainly in the UK, United States and Germany, but her figures have travelled widely throughout the world.
