Linda Lindsay is in Victoria, BC

Linda Lindsay began her creative journey in California with the encouragement of her artistic family. While studying art at university, she began sculpting the human figure and a lifelong passion was born! Over the years, by sculpting for thousands of hours from life-models, taking additional courses, and studying anatomy while modeling écorché figures she has refined her skills. With great determination to represent the truest sense of the human spirit and beautiful figurative forms, she creates each of her terracotta and bronze sculptures.

With resolve to pass these skills on to others, she earned her teaching credentials while living in California. Qualifying to teach art, at both high school and college levels, she began helping adults of all ages develop their artistic talents.

In 1993 she married a Canadian, and moved to Victoria, British Columbia where she and her husband raised a family. She teaches sculpture in Canada and internationally and is well known as an inspirational instructor who empowers her students with knowledge and skill.

Having lived in both great countries, and through her travels to Africa, Europe and Australasia, her love of humanity, often expressed through its indigenous peoples, has increased in depth, and her understanding of what binds us all finds its way into her sculptures.

Linda’s commissioned and interpretive works can be found in collections across North America.

“I am a life long student of the human form, and find enormous pleasure in my calling of sculpting people! I feel so blessed that I have the opportunity to show the world a sample of the beauty that I see in mankind!”Linda Lindsay
