Biography

Lindsay Davies

Lindsay Davies, born in Altrincham, Cheshire; studied Social Anthropology at Cambridge University; trained as an Occupational Therapist in 1986. I settled in Mid Wales in 1996, working at Llandrindod Hospital until retiring in 2012. HND part time in Design Crafts at Hereford Art College 2001-2005. My back ground is in amateur life drawing / mixed media paintings and ceramics. I go out into the hills and draw on a regular basis and then I return to the studio to translate my sketches into paintings. I enjoy being part of an art collective: discussing painting and drawing with other painters; putting my work up for constructive criticism and discussing other painters work, learning more about the whole process.

February 19 2018 This year I am moving away a little from my favourite subject: Cors y Llyn, the Nature Reserve near Rhayader, although not completely abandoning it! My focus is shifting towards the coast in readiness for our exhibition in Aberystwyth Arts Centre in July. The topic is “The Sea”, a vast and challenging thing to paint. I am looking forward to going to the Island of Colonsay in the Hebrides in the Spring so a Scottish influence is going to creep into my work. In the meantime, the winter weather has been throwing some amazing light effects on the Rhayader landscape. It is possible to get out and draw or paint as long as you are wrapped up warm!
