As a member of the 'Drawn in Bristol' collective, Lindsay works from her art studio in Hamilton House located in central Bristol. Lindsay works with a variety of material and mediums including watercolour, relief and intaligo print. Her inspiration is drawn from nature, in particular mammals and birds. Through detailed observation of animals she interested in vividly capturing their texture, pattern and colour.  Her compositions focus on shape and form to understand the physical appearance and behaviour of wild animals.
