Following 33 years of teaching Art & Design and Textiles in Secondary schools, she now uses some of her time creating a variety of art and craftwork.
Daisy works in appliqué collage, watercolour, Cards-to-Keep©, embroidery, coloured pencil and mixed media. Where possible reclaimed fabrics and papers are used and repurposed.
Commissions have constituted a major part of her recent output including, public art of illustrated maps of 3 aspects of the historic town of Diss in Norfolk. Several architectural watercolour pieces. Coloured pencil portraits of family pets and 3 needlepoint chair seats with designs inspired by William de Morgan.
Inspiration for Lindsey’s work emanates from the sheer spontaneity and exuberance of painting and drawing with Watercolour and Inks. Their unpredictable nature and fabulous colours offer exciting challenges and opportunities to work using bold washes, energy and vibrancy.
Lindsey’s paintings are highly expressive. A fluid style enables her to capture the very essence of a place in an evocative and atmospheric way. She is inspired and deeply connected with her favourite, special places such as the Sussex Downs and Venice – travel permitting!
Lindsey’s work can be seen in Chalk Gallery Lewes, Horsham Artists exhibitions and the Association of Sussex Artists. She exhibits regularly
with these groups and is an active participant in both Chalk and Horsham Artists.
Sally originated her series of Alice* prints to capture the famous local environs of Sussex Square and Lewes Crescent which surround the gardens of Kemp Town Enclosures – said to have inspired the Rev Charles Dodgson, better known as author Lewis Carroll, during his visits to Brighton.
*These images combine historic pen and ink drawings by Sir John Tenniel – from Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass with augmented photographs giving a colourful if an eccentric interpretation of the much loved classic books.
Ongoing experiments in Digital Art and 3D Installations have led Sally to make large interactive work. Her Digital Landscapes offer accessible participation and visual enjoyment.
