Lyndsey Selley

Lindsey Selley collection from Artworx Gallery


Derby-born Lyndsey left school at 16 with an O Level in art and no real idea of what she wanted to do. She developed her artistic skills painting figurines at Royal Crown Derby and designing new ranges for Denby Pottery but it was while working as an illustrator for children’s books that she first developed a love for wildlife painting. So much so that eventually Lyndsey decided she was going go it alone, painting her own wildlife art, initially using animals at zoos as her inspiration.

Her stunning paintings proved to be big hit with the public and she became busier and busier at craft fairs and shows. For the next 20 years Lyndsey’s paintings from safaris in Africa were sold at shows across the UK, through the David Shepherd Foundation and at Christies auctions in New York and London.
