About Lyntis Beard

I'm a physicist and artist. Though a scientist by training, I have maintained a strong interest in art, and have been an avid oil painter.  My home is in Burke, Virginia, a wonderful area that has provided access to a diverse artist community and to the beautiful Virginia landscape that has inspired a number of my paintings. 

I paint still lifes, portraits and landscapes. Generally, I prefer realistic or figurative art, but also like to explore subjects that have social, mythological and conceptual themes.
