Mediums Used

Lynda Hukins has an insatiable love of animals and her skill is translating the wildlife in the country and the sea shore of Kent into sculpture. She somehow captures both the strength and repose of her subjects. As she is always working on commissions she has little time to indulge her inclinations and we are extraordinary lucky to have this piece.
More recently abstract bronze sculpture has come to the fore in her work with examples to found here on Artparks site.

I have worked and produced bronzes for over 30 years and examples of my pieces can be found on the website

Sculptures by Lynda Hukins


Lynda Hukins was born in Kent, where she lived in a country envirnment and was educated during her early childhhod. The formal art school training she desired, following her school education, was not possible. This resulted in a choice of career in hotel management. She worked for a number of years in London, for an international hotel group, until she departed in 1974 to run her own business. In 1981 the business was sold when she gave it up to have a family and develop Hop Vines and Hop Garlands.

Thoughout the 90"s, with children in full time education, it was possible to devote sufficient and practical time to sculpting. The essential nature of her early work was wildlife with the inspiration for her work coming both from the rural countryside where she lives and the coastal shoreline. The opportunity to fulfil the desire she had always had for art was shown in the sculptures she was then producing. Setting out to capture the qualities of strength and movement that she looked for within her subjects she used a strong definiation of line to draw the eye to the sculpture and give the essential movement that she was seeking to give to her work.

Many of her wildlife bronzes, all of which are life size, hint at abstraction in their simplicity and stylisation, giving them contemporariness in the character of their form.

This has led to a progressive move towards abstraction in her sculpture as an expressive form of her art.
Lynda has always been drawn to the strength and movement she finds in her subject and their form, seeking to capture those qualities with a strong definition of line, to draw the eye to the sculpture, and express its essential qualities.
