Lynsey’s work is an investigation into the relationships between our surroundings and ourselves, how we view nature and the reassurance that it offers to us through its beauty, power and resilience. Inspired by spiritual teachings and philosophies, Lynsey seeks to bring a sense of being ‘in the moment’ to her paintings, where our fears dissolve and we experience joy. She expresses this through her interests in the influence of light within micro-environments, such as gardens and woodlands, where she spends much of her time. Lynsey captures the brilliance and variety of colours that can be found in these places through the use of a camera, which is in turn interpreted into painting.
