LIndsay Scott, from Zimbabwe, Africa, now lives in New Zealand with husband, Brian, and is internationally acclaimed for her dynamic and precise oil paintings and exquisitely detailed pencil drawings, all of which convey the drama and spirit of African and North American wildlife. With a background as an illustrator, a botanical researcher and a biologist, Lindsay is an avid observer of nature. Following studies at the Michealis School of Fine Art in Capetown South Africa, and the University of Minnesota, Scott returned to South Africa where she was a botanical researcher at the University of Cape Town and a curator of paleobotany and ornithology at the South African Museum. There she led field trips throughout Africa and Antarctica. She did a research trip on bird behavior to Australia for National Geographic Society, all the time recording her observations on sketch pads. In 1984, one of Lindsay's drawings was chosen for Birds In Art, the prestigious annual exhibition at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wisconsin....she then decided to devote her full attention to art.
