Lindsay started to paint when living in Papua New Guinea in the early 70s and continued painting as a second occupation until 1993 when she embarked on a serious commitment to her artistic development. In the mid 90s she started art tutoring and in 1996 established the Lindsay Hey Art Studio. This was incorporated into the Quad Art Studio/Gallery in the Arts Centre of Christchurch in 2001 and developed into the Arts en Vogue Gallery in 2004.
Her works are always colourful as she finds colour helps her recognise form and its exuberance quite simply makes her happy. Rhythm and form are particularly important to her for without them she finds a work to be passionless. The rhythm and patterning of land where it meets the sea and sky are of particular interest.
Her paintings are often somewhat whimsical, and there is often a deal of non verbal communication between the figures (usually women) she draws.
The subject matter in Lindsays work is wide and varied, ever changing and developing; she also accepts commissions.
Her works are overt. Look and enjoy.
