Lyndy Wilson, Artist

Lyndy is a contemporary painter of Tainui descent with works held in private collections throughout New Zealand and worldwide.

Her style can be described as diverse, eclectic and ever evolving which allows her the freedom to explore different subjects such as floral and botanical, abstract, landscape and more recently figurative, inspired by her heritage.

Art and Creativity have always been a passion and although mostly self taught, in 2003 she was awarded an Arts Waikato Scholarship (nominated by the Raupatu Lands Trust). This enabled her to complete a Diploma of Art and Creativity through The Learning Connexion in Wellington.

The application of paint consists of layering thick and thin paint, transparent and opaque, brushes, palette knives, rags and fingers are used, anything can become a tool. Bold gestural movements are counteracted by the need to put things in order. This is a way to process ideas, memories and feelings, the resolved work captures the essence of the experience, the goal is to bring joy or intrigue to the viewer.

Lyndy grew up and lives in the small Waikato town of Ngaruawahia surrounded by the natural beats of the Waikato and Waipa rivers and the majestic Hakarimata ranges, a constant source of inspiration.
