Lynsey Salvona graduated from Gray's School of Art, Aberdeen in 2010 and after graduating taught art in secondary schools. Since the birth of her son in 2018, Lynsey has continued to teach part time alongside developing her painting practice working from her studio in Ayrshire.
"My work explores feelings, emotions and intuitive mark making. I've always had a fascination with colours and shapes found in nature, particularly natural or decaying surfaces. Whether it be the shoreline at low tide or an abandoned building, I've always seen the beauty in the lines and shapes which have formed naturally and over time. These spaces, along with my day to day environment are filled with a sense of history which I connect with. These often provoke a strong emotional response which I use to inspire and influence my practice.
I'm drawn to the elements of time and memories and try to capture this through the use of a variety of materials and surfaces. My approach is spontaneous and relies heavily on intuition. Using energetic brush strokes and elements of drawing, I am able to release subconscious and conscious thoughts on to my painting surface."
