The soft air of the tropical evening wafting across an ocean of warm waters resonate deeply within Talin Lyman’s soul. The artist transforms her love and appreciation of the tropics into warm, vivid paintings in oil and watercolors. Her paintings are a result of her exotic upbringing, visiting the Caribbean islands frequently and living with her creative family; her father was a musician and her mother a decorator and gardener. This is no surprise that the many facets of nature became a constant theme in her works.
Lyman’s naturalistic artworks are vibrant with deep, lush colors of the tropical foliage and flora, which invite one into sense of serenity. The tropical scenes lure the viewer to step in and “breath in” the peace and pleasure of nature.
“There is an intense and audacious quality and beauty of tropical plant life, oceans, beaches and skies,” says the artist. “I believe that beauty brings about changes in our mood, health and spirituality. Observing beauty creates harmony. Creating beauty is almost a sacred duty.”
Lyman’s internationally acclaimed works have been featured in publications such as Architectural Digest, Coastal Living, Veranda, and Florida Design, as well as in international design centers and luxury hotels. In addition, her designs were recently featured on the Martha Stewart Show.
