Hi! I’m Lindy and art is Joy to me! I love, love, love art and making things. When I create my paintings, I infuse them with positive energy to uplift the spirit! I’ve always loved playful, whimsical art and that is what I create.
My hubby (and our two doggies) love to travel and explore the world. We split our time between living in Mexico and Bellingham, WA. When we get the itch, we go on an adventure and travel the world. I like to say “people do.”
Art is so amazing! It can enliven a living space and create sparkling little areas for your eyes to catch during the day. Color radiates energy and helps to create the spirit one feels about a place. I gravitate toward sunshine yellow, sky blue and mediterranean green – joy, happiness and peace.
My art has been licensed for beer labels, cross stitch patterns, puzzles, magnets, cards and chocolate bar packaging. What could be more delicious than that?
Some of the things that bring me joy are yoga, organic food, spending time with my hubby, travel, our doggies, star gazing, my mt. bike, painting all day long, thrift stores, dark chocolate, nature, twinkly lights, making stuff, farmers markets, rock and roll, a good book and an ocean view (not necessarily in that order).
My acrylic paintings explore my interest in symbolism, nature and the idea that all things have energy and are connected. One of my goals, not taking life too seriously, helps me to create a positive and playful atmosphere in my work.
An important element of my work is vivid color. This vibrancy represents joyfulness and a life force overflowing with love, peace and positive energy. I love things that are colorful, whimsical, and uplifting with a bit of mysticism, spirituality and fantasy thrown in. As a kid, I loved drawing castles, celestial things and fantasy characters.
My background in graphic design helps me work with composition, shape and a variety of mark makings.
Inspiration is everywhere – a red next to a blue, a line from a song, gardens, dream scenes, a photo, a snippet of conversation. The spirits within nature – tiny birds, the intriguing raven, trees that dance in the wind, the simple lotus blossom, they all speak to me with the miracle of their creation and this imagery springs to life in my paintings.
Being still and meditating are part of my daily practice, and when I’m in the middle of painting this is where I go. As I clear the mind and let my intuitive self take over, I often find I’m painting glowing elements which signify the radiant energy of all beings and things. Spirals swirl through the painting and remind me that life is always expanding. The connection of energy rippling outward between all things, as well as knowing that we are “all one” is my spiritual foundation and the deepest inspiration for my work.
