Lindsay is an abstract artist and her process has a strong basis in observation and experience of the natural world.
Lindsay predominantly uses drawing, painting, reclaimed textiles and found objects to explore ideas about inheritance, consciousness and place. How we receive, process and reconstruct the places, lands, thoughts and feelings that are handed down to us. And what we in turn, both consciously and unconsciously, choose to pass on.
“I explore authenticity and imperfection of medium and mark-making, balance and tension in the interplay of composition and colour to create pieces imbued with the complex, often contradictory and sometimes confusing relationship between self, history and place - emotions such as nostalgia, peace, joy, unease and melancholy.”
Lindsay is a visual artist living and working in Oxfordshire. Lindsay studied at the University of Bristol and following an MA in Shakespeare and Literature has had a varied career across the arts, including performing and visual arts, working with community groups and projects and in venues. Her practice is now focused on the visual arts and transitions contemporary craft and art. She has exhibited in contemporary art galleries across the country and her work is in private collections in the UK and Canada.
Lindsay is passionate about encouraging others’ creativity and has been working as a workshop leader for over 10 years, this work has led to a deep interest in how art and crafts can benefit our mental health. She regularly works as an artist for Shine PND Support and sells a range of craft kits that focus of finding mindfulness through making.
