 Artist's Biography

SHOWING an early flair for art, Lyndsay Russell left Bournemouth for London to study at Watford College of Art & Design in the '80's.           
After graduating with an Honours Diploma, she worked mainly in advertising, until diversifying into photography and journalism in 1993. 
Before long, her photos were appearing in the national press and she began working as a regular freelance for magazines and broadsheet newspapers such as

The Ritz and The Independent. 

 Many years later, on marrying and having a daughter, Lyndsay swapped the metropolis for the peace and quiet of Kingston, near Richmond Park.  A new era allowed her to explore her passion and start producing art again.

"It's amazing how it all started.  I was frustrated because I just couldn't find the right painting to go in my newly renovated kitchen... so I picked up my brushes again, and created a couple of my own, exploring my original style further".

"Visitors to the house who had no idea I painted asked where they could get similar pieces.. and so I began taking commissions."  

Since then, things have just snowballed by word of mouth.

Lyndsay has an unusual skill in adapting the shade palette and features of a room into her private commissions, painting custom originals that echo their surroundings in a unique, surrealistic style.  Whether fine art or for commercial interior design, her signature style is renowned for being surreal, flowing, and swirling.  With a fresh, whimsical approach to her work, she creates contemporary pieces that are both engaging and distinctive.

Also a successful author,  her publishers  invited her to illustrate and design her own cover for the mass market edition.
