Get to Know

HELLO. I'm the Lyn in silvermoonlyn and I live and work in Mackay on the central coast of Queensland, Australia. My work, in its many forms of glass, jewellery, painting and ceramics has won awards both here and overseas. My creative journey has led me to where I am now in my life. I've always (for as long as I can remember) done 'stuff'. I trained as an Interior Designer, did freelance artwork for a printer, worked in a glass studio designing and cutting leadlight windows and tiffany lampshades, designed and hand painted ceramic tiles for a well known tile company. For the better part of 30 years I have done and taught ceramics, mosaic and leadlighting. In recent years I began jewellery making, which is how I came back to 'glass'. I fell in love with the magic of dichroic glass about 20 years ago when I first saw it for lead lighting. In more recent times I rediscovered it for creating the most amazing miniature artworks which I could incorporate into my jewellery. And so, an obsession was well and truly born! I hope you get as much pleasure from my art as I get in creating it.
