Dick Lyne was born in December 1927 in Frankton Junction, Waikato.
Dick worked many jobs such as a storeman, a fitter's mate, a dye hand and an apprentice printer before settling in to a life as a Bushman in the King Country district. Upon his retirement at the age of 65 Dick took to painting. Entirely self-taught, his first painting was of his boat the 'Dora Alice', he now concentrates on paintings of the native bush, in particular the Kauri and Rimu.
