Lyndy Wilson is a Waikato artist who is of Tainui descent. She grew up and lives in Ngaruawahia, New Zealand and is surrounded by the majestic Hakarimata ranges and the Waikato and Waipa rivers, this natural beauty is a constant source of inspiration. Art and creativity have always been a passion, painting in particular. Although mostly self taught, in 2003 Lyndy was awarded an Arts Waikato Scholarship (nominated by the Waikato Raupatu Lands Trust), which enabled her to complete a Diploma of Art and Creativity though The Learning Connexion in Wellington.
Lyndy has a diverse range of styles but the strong use of colour is constant. Relying on instinct and intuition, paintings often evolve, layer by layer. Bold gestural movements are counteracted by the need to put things in order. She likes to experiment with different mediums but mostly enjoys the immediacy of acrylic paint .
