Lindy Longhurst

For many years  through much travel, exposure to different cultures and
spirituality I have been exploring my creativity in the expression of mandalas.
Originally with  a background in  landscape architecture and design I now work
full time as an artist. My inspiration for my art is based on a strong connection
with the earth - to the natural elements, and an exploration into the conscious
and subconscious worlds - via dreams and meditation.

My works include a series of mandalas based on the  Zodiac, Australian
landscapes,  the Seven Chakras, and the Major Arcana of the Tarot.  All of
these works are available as
greeting cards and are distributed nationally
within Australia.

As well as this I have created over 150
Personalised Mandalas for individuals
and couples and am currently  working on a series of  figurative works on
canvas titled "Dream Series". The Dream Series has proved popular with many
ages and is continually growing. There are currently over 280 images within the
series which have been reproduced into various products including prints,
cards, jewellery and accessories. The products can be found within my
online shop, as well as in retail outlets throughout Australia. As well I sell
weekly out of markets on the mid north coast of NSW. (See
here for full details
on market times and dates).

I have had several exhibitions in Australia and Europe and my work has also
been published in magazines in Australia and the US. In 2011 I illustrated my
first children's book titled "A Little Bird Told Me" by author Mimi King.
Currently I am working on illustrations for an affirmation deck to be published
by Blue Angel Publishing and to be written by Alana Fairchild.
Following this project I will be working on my second children's picture book
titled "Emily and the Very Big Feeling", written by Celeste Cannell and
published by Empowering Resources.
