A few words from Lynsay about her background
"I am an Artist based in Perthshire, I graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Illustration and Printmaking from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2004. I also completed a PGD in Theatre Design and worked freelance in Theatre for a few years. I took some time out to have children and in 2015, I returned to my love of painting and illustrating. I now work from my garden studio in St. Madoes, Perthshire.
Recently I have been working on a series of bright and vivid paintings inspired by The River Tay and the beautiful reeds. I paint from memory and my imagination creating my own colourful interpretation of the sky and landscape. I paint in layers, scraping back to reveal the first layers of colour and use translucent and opaque colours on top of each other to create more and more layers. I use different techniques with brushes, palette knives and other found tools to create interesting textures and marks."
