Lindsey McTavish

Lindsey McTavish, a native of Toronto, has found her creative mooring nestled in the picturesque mountain town of Nelson, British Columbia. Her artistic career has been a tapestry of experiences, spanning both formal education and a deep connection to her community. With an academic background that includes a three year immersion in Fibre Arts at the Kootenay School of the arts in Nelson, B.C, followed by two years in the fashion design program at The International Academy of Design and Technology in Toronto, Lindsey has emerged as a dynamic artist. Lindsey’s artworks draw inspiration from an array of sources, most notably the captivating landscapes of Canada, and the vibrant interplay of colour and texture and of light and shadow that surround her. Through her fibre artworks, she paints vivid recreations of what she sees and feels as she aims to capture the people, places, and events in her life.
