Lindsey Whitelaw is a painter and landscape architect. She studied Fine Art at Exeter Art College in the 1970’s and landscape architecture at Manchester University.

She set-up a successful Landscape Practice based in London and Leeds, concentrating on urban regeneration and integrating art into the public realm. Since retiring from Landscape practice in 2011 she has returned to painting, exploring her interest and concerns for the environment.

Her early work depicted the landscape from the air and she very much admires Peter Lanyon’s abstract expression of the land. She has maintained a connection to these abstract expressionist roots whilst developing a more figurative approach to the subject of overlooked, forgotten or threatened landscapes. In her  ‘Hive’ series, she returns to earth to raise awareness of the perilous effect of habitat loss.

She is currently working  in collaboration with Moorfields Eye Hospital and  volunteers on a series of paintings to raise awareness of living with visual impairment. The exhibition will be launched at the Bloomsbury Festival October 2021

She splits her time between Cyprus and the UK.
