Artist Statement:

An award winning painter, Lindsey maintains a busy schedule of exhibiting work throughout the UK and is represented in both public and private art collections. She is an elected Professional Member of both the Society of Scottish Artists (SSA) and Visual Arts Scotland (VAS). Lindsey lives and works in Edinburgh.

Lindsey was originally trained and practised as an architect and this background has gifted her with a passion for the built environment; the buildings and the spaces in between. Lindsey is drawn to the structural elements of cities: stairways, doorways, arches, bridges; points of transition / thresholds.  She is interested in the way in which light interacts with the mundane; the transformative effect of sunlight and shade on something very ordinary; essential elements upon which we tend not to focus. Colour and perspective are important features of the work but the key focus is always the light.
