An art teacher has had her work selected from more than 800 entries to appear alongside paintings by some of Britain’s leading pastel artists.

Lyn Evans, who teaches in St Andrews and Edinburgh, has been selected from over 800 entries to appear alongside paintings by some of Britain’s leading pastel artists.

The Pastel Society’s annual exhibition will be on display at Mall Galleries in central London from next week.

The exhibition features art created using pastels, pencils, chalk and charcoal.

Lyn said: “I have painted throughout most of my life from my younger days at Sunderland Art College through to the present day.

“I am inspired mostly by the more unusual colours of nature: the early morning or late evening light, particularly during the Autumn months. When I am not working en plein air I am usually in my studio.”

She added: “I teach in St. Andrews and Edinburgh and often work to commission where it is portraits, both human and animal, which are popular but the stunning light of Fife will always draw me outside.”

The exhibition runs from February 20 until March 3, 2018.
