LYNETTE TEN KROODEN (1955) – Lynette ten Krooden is often categorised as a “landscape artist.” This narrow definition, of this well-travelled and scholarly artist, is perhaps too restrictive.

Lynette’s works penetrate deeper than mere representations of landscape and become vehicles for her exploration of symbols and spiritual dwellings with a metaphysical quality. Twenty-five years of travel and research into fossil life, ancient civilisations, their petroglyphs and cultures has resulted in Lynette forming a universal mythology which she utilizes as a forum for discourse.
