Oil on Canvas
Lynsey studied at Dundee College until 1997, later graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 2001. She specialises in painting abstracted images of flora, which she collects through her photography. The use of photography is a fundamental part of the process she goes through in sourcing suitable subject matter for her work. Lynsey is particularly interested in how light and colour creates qualities in photography that cannot be seen by the naked human eye. These jewelled, orb-like light fragments dance around and illuminate the flora around them, radiating vibrant colour. Since 2001 she has held solo exhibitions throughout the UK and Amsterdam. She received the Ian Eadie Award in 2001, and in 2002 the Dundee Visual Arts Award. Some of Lynsey's work is held in various Public Collections such as, Ninewells Hospital and Royal Victoria Hospital in Dundee, and Healthcare, Edinburgh.
