LINDY DUNBAR BA Hons Cert Ed.



Lindy makes works celebrating the serendipity of the curves, twists and shapes in the moving and motionless form, with a feeling of movement and sensual vulnerability. Each figurative and landscape composition is executed with a flowing, organic style, in a variety of media, composition and size.

Lindy also tutors in St Andrews Place Art School, Lewes.


Lindy has sold work to local, national and international collectors. Work can be purchased through her exhibitions as well as privately and she will undertake commissions.

‘Movement and the sense of life are my fascination.’


I paint and draw directly from life celebrating the individuality, dynamism, curves and shapes in the moving and motionless human form.  I use varied materials such as paint, ink, charcoal and pastel on canvas or paper.  Each medium has a particular excitement and the quality of marks and colour palette is of paramount importance.


Dancers, acrobats and performers are often the basis of my work as they move before me, and its a pleasure to share in their creative process.  There is never more than a brief moment of stillness as even when the performers are briefly holding their position, the rope or trapeze still maintains energy and life or the dancers move on.  I have to grasp what I see, capturing the serendipity of the fleeting tensions as they emerge and disappear.  I strive to give the appearance that the figure has only just arrived and could get up and move away at any moment, even in a longer pose.


It is a delight to be the Artist in Residence in Eastbourne College when Rambert Dance Company hold a yearly workshop. I was thrilled to be invited to exhibit at Glyndebourne during their 2016 Festival.
