Lindy has always painted. From sketches of friends at school, to a career in still life, trompe-l’oeil and watercolours.
In 1999 she realised that her greatest passion, the place where she felt most fulfilled, was painting people. Later that same year she started portraiture training at Charles Cecil Studios in Florence, Italy.
On returning, she tucked away her watercolours, dusted off her oils, and has been painting commissions and continuing her studies ever since.
Other training highlights include: a diploma in Portraiture at Healthelys, London; studying under six different American masters; and intense courses in anatomy.
Career highlights include:
A recent commission to paint thirty officers of the Irish Guards that was unveiled by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2015.
Winning The President and Vice President Choice Award in 2012 at the Society of Women Artists exhibition Mall Galleries for “Model in New York” for the best painting.
