Lindsay attended Edinburgh College of Art from 1994 to 1998 and graduated with BA (Hons) in Drawing and Painting (First Class). She then completed a Master of Fine Arts in Painting (1998-2000). She is currently Artist in Residence for the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh.
Her work shows a pre-occupation with the repetitions, rhythms and cycles within the natural world. Her paintings often give solidity and a sense of permanence to fleeting moments and to the subtleties of nature that are frequently overlooked. Her work is simultaneously intimate and monumental.
Since 2000, Lindsay’s work has been exhibited widely in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
