Lyn St. Clair
Lyn St. Clair’s work is based exclusively on her personal experience. She spends countless hours in the field watching the wildlife she portrays and exploring the country that inspires her work, and she is the 2016 Featured Painter for PWAF.
Lyn’s paintings have won over 80 awards across the country, including Best in Show three years in a row at the Ward Museum Show. Her work has been exhibited at the Tucson Museum of Art, Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, Bennington Center for the Arts, the West Valley Art Museum, the Hiram Blauveldt Art Museum and the Phippen Museum. Other notable exhibitions that have included her work are Arts for the Parks Top 100, “Wild in de Natuur” (Enschede, Netherland) and the Society of Animal Artists’ Annual Shows. Lyn’s work is in the permanent collections of the Bennington Center for the Arts and the Worrell Museum. Recent awards include an Excellence Award at the Natureworks Show and People’s Choice at Plein Air on the Yellowstone. A Tennessee girl who followed her art West, Lyn currently resides on the edge of a Montana ranch that borders National Forest and Wilderness North of Yellowstone.
A fascination and great love for African Wildlife has led Michelle to capture the true nature of animals on canvas in a boldly modern and yet realistic style. With more than 30 years of painting experience, Michelle’s approach to painting wildlife is both highly skilled, well thought out and tenderly executed. Michelle is born and raised in South Africa, and this is her first year at Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival!
