ABOUT

Lindy in her baja studioGreetings!

Does colorful art make your heart sing? Me too! I’m Lindy and it makes my heart happy to make colorful paintings that bring joy to others.

“My paintings are filled with colorful art for the soul. My art is made to uplift the spirit and bring vivid color into your life.”

When I create my colorful art, I infuse it with positive energy to uplift the spirit.

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 can change the feeling about a place. I gravitate toward sunshine yellow, sky blue and mediterranean green – joy, happiness and peace.

My hubby and I love to travel and explore this beautiful planet. We split our time between Mexico and Washington State and parts in between. When we get the itch, we go on an adventure and travel. I like to say “people do.” To read my 5-part series about my artist’s journey, go here>

ARTIST STATEMENT

Lindy in StudioMy colorful art explores 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.

Colorful Art

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.

Because of my fine art background with an emphasis in graphic design, I find composition, color and a variety of mark makings deeply effects my work.

Inspiration is everywhere – a red next to a blue, a line from a song, gardens, dream scenes, a photo, a snippet of conversation. Similarly, the spirits within nature – tiny birds, the intriguing raven, trees dancing 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 Meditation

In addition, both being still and meditating are part of my daily practice. When I’m in the middle of painting this is where I go. No sooner than I have cleared my mind, my intuitive self takes over and I find I am painting glowing elements and free flowing lines. As a result, I believe I am painting the radiant energy of all beings and things! I see spirals swirl through my paintings to 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 most importantly, the deepest inspiration for my work.
