A professional self-taught artist for over 25 years specialising in wildlife. Lyndsey works from her own photos taken on Safaris in Africa. Her originals and prints have been sold across the UK at art shows and galleries through Solomon & Whitehead and the David Shepherd foundation, Christie’s Auctions both London and New York.

Lyndsey was born in Derby where leaving school at 16 she worked as a figurine painter for Royal Crown Derby traveling to Canada as an Ambassador for the compan...read morey to demonstrate the skill of painting onto bone china.
After a few years and looking for a challenge Lyndsey then went on to work for a company designing cards for big publishing houses as well as illustrating children’s books for international clients. After being commissioned to illustrate a series of 14 wildlife books for children Lyndsey new this was a subject she wished to move forward with. To enable her to do this she left the world of illustration and worked for four years part time as a designer for Denby pottery ( Where she designed a table- ware ranged named Storm) so she could build up a portfolio of her own paintings to take out to the public.

The time came to focus full time on her wildlife art that took her on Safaris for reference. Commissions and awards followed. After more than twenty successful years Lyndsey decided it was time to take a step out of the art world and began focusing on her other passion of craftsmanship, art and sculpture by other artists. Lyndsey opened a gallery specialising in hand crafted products by professional artists around the UK.

For ten years Lyndsey put down her brushes and concentrated on the gallery. The wonderful works, colours, interior trends and evolving technics she saw coming through the gallery door have inspired her to pick up the brushes again.

Lyndsey’s new work still shows an element of the detail that she became known for but now with a contemporary twist. Working in Oils she uses brighter colours, looser technics to create more of an atmosphere than a study which lends them to be displayed in both a traditional and modern styles homes. This new style is constantly evolving and I am excited to see what else comes off my easel in the future and to share it with you all.
