Lynne Windsor


Born in Lincolnshire, England, in 1953, Lynne Windsor’s passion for creativity began with encouragement from an enthusiastic art teacher at Hawnes School in Bedfordshire. She studied drawing and design principles at Loughborough College of Art and Design in Leicestershire, and then earned her B.A. Honors at Hornsey College of Art and Design, London, in 1975. There she studied 3 dimensional design, specializing in ceramics.

While raising her family, Windsor continued to attend life drawing, etching, sculpture and painting classes at Richmond College and St. Martins Art College, London. In 1989, she began painting exclusively in oils. In September 1993, she traveled to New Mexico to paint for three weeks. This trip proved to be a major creative turning point for the artist.

Windsor has traveled extensively in Europe, Morocco and parts of the U.S., visiting many museums along the way. In 1995, she and her husband Barry McCuan, a native New Mexican artist, spent half a year capturing the beauty of the countryside of Great Britain and Southern France on canvas.

“Photos, sketches, notes and memory help me recapture what might have been a fleeting inspiration,” Windsor says of her art. “Using a limited palette, mainly on Baltic birch panels and at times linen, I work in layers of opaque paint and glazes. I am fascinated by the subtleties in color created by glazes.”

Windsor was chosen as the official artist for the 1997 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta poster. She was also chosen to exhibit with three other artists at the University of New Mexico-Los Alamos show.
