About Lindy's Art
Having a intense sense of design and pattern, Lindy reflects this both in her paintings and her textile creations. While clearly grounded in the symbolism and bright colours of Klimt and Hundertwasser, her works are tempered by the organic flow of the Fauves and Art Nouvea and the stylistic emotional intensity of abstract expressionism. in love Lindy particularly enjoys portrait commissions as they allow her to indulge her fascination with people. portrait She also greatly enjoys her involvement in art workshops, which afford her the luxury of passing on her extensive experience and knowledge of a variety of media in an intimate and rewarding setting.
