5 minutes with... serpent mandalas

Open Heart - Dream Series Print

Who are you & what do you do?
My name is Lindy Longhurst and I am a fulltime artist. I work with acrylics on canvas, and mixed media on paper.I paint and draw mandalas as well as figurative works on canvas.I sell original artworks, prints, cards, accessories and jewellery with my images on them.

Can you please walk us through making one of your products, from conception through completion?
1. I usually start with very quick sketches, a flash of inspiration from a dream or a vision, single words usually play an important part in the unravelling of an image.
2. I paint it...I often have about 10 - 15 paintings on the go at once. I have periods of lots of activity and then periods where I won't paint for ages.
3. When its done I scan it, piece it together and make reproductions from it. I do all my own printing and make up all my own products.
