Lindy McCann has been a lifelong artist but has had to overcome much adversity to continue her artist’s journey: she had a stroke a few years ago, and continues on her recovery journey today. Lindy's creativity and inner artist has remained, even though her physical body is restricted: Nevertheless, she persists!!
Lindy enjoys the process of the painting, the familiar slide of the paint on the page; the bursts of bright colours and abstract shapes. The paintings created by Lindy hold this natural beauty within them, a persistent and emotional vibrancy. Lindy draws much inspiration from views from her own window and deck: from Marengo looking over to Apollo Bay hills, their everlasting 'hug' over the small township.
Lindy lives at her home with her husband Mark, and their menagerie of pets. Her two loving daughters and their families live and are a big part of the community of Apollo Bay. Lindy is assisted in her daily life by a team of carers from the community as well. She loves a chat and if you see her around or at Icaro having a hot chocolate come and say G’day!
Local artist Danni Sandford guides and assists Lindy to create her artworks. Lindy paints every single brush stroke of her paintings and is an inspiration to us all. Danni and Lindy share a love of bold bright colour, abstract landscapes, and all things Pink. And Purple…!! OK, so they love all of the colours, as you can see in their artworks.
