Lin Barrie

Lin Barrie, Artist.... 
Expressing her hopes, fears and love for special ecosystems with her paintbrush, found objects  and her favourite palette knife, Lin responds to the world around her. 
Lin believes that the essence of a landscape, person or animal can only truly be captured by direct observation. That exploration, that direct and enquiring gaze, can then grow into meaningful abstraction.  
She immerses herself in her subjects, her surroundings, whether it is sketching rhinos, skulls, African wild dogs and their pups, painting cultural dancers or dreaming into landscapes, skyscapes, mindscapes. 
She states, “I feel an intimate connection with the natural world, ecosystems.  From field and life drawings, I create works on canvas, using oils and acrylics.  I enjoy the immediacy and abstract quality of my preferred tool, a treasured old palette knife inherited from my father, to create expressive strokes”.  
Biology was a passion for Lin during her school years. Plans to enter the world of science were superseded only by the decision to pursue the lonely path of an artistic career! After completing a Fine Art Diploma in printmaking, with painting and sculpture, at Durban Art College in 1980, she  gained experience as a textile designer, travelling extensively to Europe and the Far East for business and pleasure. In 1991, after returning to Zimbabwe from the Far East, and having explored Chinese brushstroke painting and Indonesian batik techniques, she became a full time fine artist. 
Lin Barrie now spends much of her time the south east of Zimbabwe with her life partner Clive Stockil, a respected conservationist and ardent spokesman for the rural communities adjacent to the Save Valley Conservancy and Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge.
