About the Artist

Lynne Beckett is a native of Oxford England but moved to Florida in 1992. Her full time career as a graphic designer complements her natural talent as a fine art painter. Lynne is now an accomplished and recognized painter in the miniature technique; her paintings have been hung at the RMS exhibition in London, England, the MPSGS exhibition Washington D.C., and the MASF exhibition Clearwater.

Artist's Statement

The Forked Bluecurls is painted in the miniature technique although it is technically too large for exhibition. I have enjoyed the challenge of this endeavor and look forward to the successful conclusion of the FLOR500 project and the re-propagation of so many beautiful wildflowers into the Florida countryside.
