Born and raised in Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia), Lindy Acton spent her youth in the beautiful Bvumba Mountains, Eastern Highlands, where she developed a love for indigenous flora. 

Lindy studied Fine Art Graphics in Durban for three years, majoring in etching and print making, and went on to become a Graphic Designer for many years. For the last 25 years she has been a full time Watercolourist.

Internationally recognised for her intricate and unique style, selling her work worldwide, Lindy has held both solo and joint exhibitions in South Africa, Zimbabwe and the United Kingdom. She has a long-standing relationship with two leading South African galleries, the Elizabeth Gordon Gallery, and the Tamasa Gallery, where her work is always available.

“I have always loved Watercolours, their immediacy and fluidity are challenging, and I try not to be limited by ‘watercolour rules’. I am constantly inspired by natural objects, flora, fabrics, design and colour.”
