LINDSEY FOGGETT
Biography


Lindsey Foggett's future seemed determined from a very early age. Growing up in a small village in the heart of the English countryside, she soon developed a love and fascination for wildlife and nature. Encouraged by two artistically talented parents, her passion to paint and study wildlife was to evolve into a lifelong career.

Self-taught, Lindsey paints primarily with acrylic, gouache and oil, and has painted full time since 1982. She works in a natural, detailed style, striving to portray not only realism, but also to capture the mood and personality of the animals.

North American predatory animals play an important role in her paintings. "I enjoy painting a wide variety of animals" Lindsey states, "I must confess to a preoccupation with the predators. I find them quite intriguing, partly because they are so elusive to study- I can still vividly recall the thrill of spoiling my first wolf in the wild, not more than 30 feet away!" Lindsey's work not only shows the powerful and intense nature of these animals, but also their gentle, nurturing, and soft side.

To obtain reference for her work, she has traveled throughout Europe, East Africa, and much of North America to observe and photograph wildlife and to study their natural habitats.

Currently residing in the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California, she has an abundance of reference for her paintings. Local trails into the wilderness surround her home, where bears, mountain lions, bobcat & deer, raccoons, coyotes and many other animals are frequently sighted.

Lindsey's work has been exhibited in shows and galleries throughout the United States and internationally in Hong Kong, and Europe. Some of the U.S. shows Southeastern Wildlife Exposition, Charleston SC., Florida Wildlife Exposition, FL, (featured artist 2000), Wonders of Nature, Fallbrook, CA (featured artist 2000), Wildlife Art Festival, San Bernardino, CA (featured artist 1997), Southeastern Invitational; Miniature Show, Germantown, NC (featured artist, 2002), and Arts for the Parks (top 100, for 2002)
