Lynn Howarth is a Glasgow based artist who works mainly in pastels, focusing mainly on portraits and figurative work. A graduate of the prestigious Grays School of Art - Lynn prefers working with pastel, charcoal and chalk because of their inherent tactility. She says of her portraits:
'People - even strangers, often intrigue me and I find I am attracted to a certain aspect or characteristic in a face, the arch of an eyebrow, a hair colour or even a simple facial expression will suddenly pull me in... An emotion captured. I see it and stop. Something connects within me and I have to draw.'
