Visit artist's studios and venues in Peterborough and the surrounding areas

Lynne Collins

Welcome to Open Studios 2024.

I’m exhibiting with Jeni Cairns and we can’t wait to see you. Life has no meaning for me without creativity. Illustration is what I love. For the past ten years I’ve sat on hundreds of Peterborough benches illustrating life as it happens. I’m a bit obsessed but love it. My work is very loose, illustrative and distinctive.

2024 will see my 10th Anniversary of my first Bench View illustration so please celebrate with me and I’m also in the middle of a new series of bench views so there will be lots to see and talk about.

Jeni’s garden is amazing, come have a cup of tea in a relaxed and comfortable space, not forgetting other refreshments and cake.

Looking forward to another great open studios.

Best wishes, Lynne
