“Artist turns muddy Thames river water into fine art” - Newsquest 2022

 

 

With a background as a best-selling author and radio journalist, Lyndsay recently finished a 2 year MFA Fine Art post grad at Kingston School of Art, Kingston University, London.

 

Currently immersed in developing a new, distinctive and thought-provoking contemporary practice, she is exploring multidisciplinary skills in painting, sculpture and photography.

 

Since leaving University (Graduated summer 2022) she has already had her work exhibited in The Saatchi Gallery, The West Bund, Shanghai (Chinese equivalent of Tate Modern) and is currently exhibiting alongside Millais and Turner in Kingston Museum for a six month show ending April 13th 2024.  She has also held two very successful  immersive music /words and art solo gallery shows, and has had work exhibited at The Rose Theatre, Orleans House Gallery, Kingston and RuptureXIBIT Gallery Hampton Wick.

 

Her imagination is daily inspired by living on a dutch barge on the Thames, surrounded by water, parkland, and wildlife.

Background:

 

Originally from the south coast of England, Lyndsay graduated with Honours at Watford College of Art & Design as a copywriter.

 

On leaving she worked mainly in advertising (two industry awards), until diversifying into photography, scriptwriting, journalism, and radio reporting in the early 90's.

 

Before long, her words, photographs and illustrations were appearing in the national press, magazines and broadsheet newspapers such as The Times, The Guardian, The City Player, The Ritz and The Independent.

 

By 2003 Lyndsay had swapped the busy London metropolis for Kingston Upon Thames. Here, she wrote her first novel, Making It Big, a best-seller reaching no. 9 on Kindle. Now, surrounded by nature and the elements on her boat Solaris, she still writes, but is relishing a full-time career as an artist - both through exhibitions and private commissions, as well as post graduate study.
