Lindsay Scott (b. 1955)  Artworks >>

Born and raised in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, a haven for exotic birds and wildlife, Lindsay Scott is an accomplished painter of African wildlife in their natural settings. She spent her childhood observing wild animals, and nature became her passion. She worked as a botanical researcher at the University of Cape Town and as a Curator of Paleobotany and Ornithology at the South African Museum, and both jobs gave her knowledge of plant and animal structures. She got a fine arts degree from the University of Minnesota, and from then has earned much recognition as a wildlife artist including that of first woman to be featured artist at the 1996 Southeastern Wildlife Exposition. In the early 1980s, she did detailed animal drawings in pencil, but in the 1990s switched to oil painting. She has a reputation for capturing body language and facial expression of animals. Her studio is in Ventura, California. SOURCE; AskArt.com
