Lyn LE GRICE
In her varied creative careers, the strand that follows through in Lyn's work is design and colour, delivered at all times to the viewer with enthusiasm and vitality.
Her initial work was with interior decoration (both in homes and commercial premises, often for celebrated people), and to this endeavour she developed the strong and innovative use of the stencil. Her books attest to the many decorative uses that her personally-cut designs could be put: to floors, walls, and furnishings. She formed her own interior design company, and even for a brief period ran an arts and crafts shop alongside her studio work.
Since the late 1990s she has turned her attention and energies to stage and costume design, mainly for opera companies, working on commission for large productions such as the Scottish Opera production of Cosi fan Tutte in 2000, and productions held at the Hall for Cornwall, Truro. Lyn is on the board of the Royal Cornwall Museum and RIC, and gives her time to raising funds for the support of the galleries there.
She is the wife of the artist Jeremy LE GRICE. They live and work from the Flowerloft Studios at Trereife, Newlyn.
