Lyndsey Hatchwell

Lyndsey Hatchwell is third generation artist, originally taught by her father (an NZ based Artist/Sculptor).

As a mid career artist her disciplines include painting, drawing, printmaking and also sculpting in bone, wood, metal and recycled items. Her continual experimentation with new materials and concepts guarantees there are no dull moments in her studio. Nature and humour often feature in her works, although she would class herself as eclectic in regards to subject matter as it is what she feels a connection to at that time that drives her creativity the most. Themes also recur, such as good versus evil, chivalry versus cowardice with particular interest in Ned Kelly and Cervante’s Don Quixote.

A finalist in many art competitions such as The Hills Grammar Acquisitive Art Prize, Blacktown Art Prize, Hunters Hill Art Prize, The Bald Archy, Westmead Art Prize to name a few.

Lyndsey has won multiple awards in different disciplines and has artworks in private and public institutions here in Australia and works also in private collections overseas. Her artworks have also been featured in the Medical Journal Australia multiple times. Lyndsey is one of 3 artists involved in bringing “Drawing on Memory” to life for Holocaust Survivor Harry Fransman (featured on Channel 7’s Weekend Sunrise). Her studies include a Diploma of Fine Art from The Sydney Gallery School, study at Julian Ashton School of Art, Waikato Polytech and many casual art workshops.

Lyndsey is also a director of a Pop Up gallery – “Pop Goes the Easel” currently located in Parramatta.
