(American b. 1982)
Lindsay was born in Santa
Monica, California in 1982. She seemed destined for an art career when at
the age of five; she thought she invented secondary colors when she mixed her crayolas, creating orange, purple & green. At the age of 16, she was
teaching charcoal and oil painting at O’Neils Fine Arts in Malibu to children
and teens. It was at this school that she was first introduced to the
paintings of John Singer Sargent, who became a big influence and inspiration.
After graduating from High
School, Lindsay had a full scholarship to the University of San Diego.
Within a few weeks of her first semester, she realized she was pursuing the
wrong path. The art department had moved her into a senior level class
after reviewing her art portfolio, and yet she felt the school did not have the
tools to help her improve and get to where she longed to be. She quit to
attend the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Upon her graduation, she
was selected as one of the top fine artists in her graduating class.
Her true artistic passion began
to unfold after she moved to Paris. Experiencing the city’s decorative
heritage, Goodwin’s brush soon revealed the full depth of her sensory
observations and artistic translations. Her paintings began to burst onto
the art scene through widespread publication highlighting her impressive talent.
Lindsay returned to the United
States and soon Collectors and celebrities everywhere began snapping up her work
as they became available. This caught the attention of such notable
magazines as Southwest Art, who selected her as one of their featured group “21
under 31”, an annual spread which recognizes the most talented of the current
young generation of fine artists. She has been a featured Artist in both
fine art and mainstream publications, such as American Art Collector, Fine Art
Connoisseur, Plein Air, American Style, Casa Magazine, San Francisco Chronicle,
Montecito Magazine, Santa Barbara Seasons, C magazine and American Art Review
numerous times. She has had numerous sold out One Woman Shows within the
United States and has also been juried into the Gold Medal show of the
California Art Club. This has been a remarkable achievement for such a
Lindsay lives in California and
makes a yearly pilgrimage to the historic interiors of France to build reference
and studies for her latest works, which merge reality and romanticism. She
has found a niche in painting interiors, and has achieved an amazingly
successful art career for one so young.
