Biography - Lyn Diefenbach

Lyn Diefenbach was born in Yeppoon and grew up with a family heritage of painting, pottery and wood-turning and had a paintbrush in her hand from a very early age. After working exclusively in oils, Lyn began experimenting with pastel in July 1995 and was quickly drawn to its immediacy and spontaneity. A workshop at 'Willowbank' in Victoria with pastellist Ted Berry further enthused her, so much so, that in March 1998 she received her official recognition as a Master Pastellist from the Australian Pastel Society.

Lyn's philosophy is to be "always learning" and to achieve masterly qualities within her work. She takes time out from her busy schedule for personal development In 1999 she travelled to New York to study under world-renowned portrait artist Daniel E. Greene. Her works cover a myriad of themes - portraiture, florals, landscapes, sea-scapes and still life. Each is imbued with her fascination for the interplay of light with her subject.

Lyn has become a sought after teacher in her own right, conducting regular workshops in pastel, oils and watercolour throughout Queensland. She has received many commissions and Awards particularly for portraiture and human interest paintings. Her exuberant florals are also highly sought after, captivating the viewer by colour, tone and texture.

Her paintings are represented in major regional collections as well as private collections within Australia and overseas.
