Lindsay Bardwil was born in Manhattan, New York in 1986. After spending 2 years at Northeastern University in Boston, she returned to NYC to further her fashion education at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology.
A self-taught painter, Bardwil often incorporates her fashion training into her art, designing prints for fashion and interior designers. Most notably, she hand-painted custom prints for womenswear designer Heather Lawton, and currently has work for sale at the Missoni Home store in Southampton, NY. Bardwil's work has been exhibited widely in New York, and she regularly donates her artwork for auction to causes she supports, such as the annual SEED Organization Benefit Auction and the American Heart Association Heart Ball Auction.
Bardwil currently maintains studios in Manhattan’s West Village and in Southampton, NY. In these private spaces, she produces a large range of work focusing on the abstract, surrealistic, and expressionistic realms of painting and creating.
Her metaphysical perspective takes the viewer on a resonant journey into her universe, where nature is king, and the result is entirely immersive. Bardwil's focus on textures and bold color schemes is used to communicate the depth and vividness of our embroidered existence – supporting the desire to exist openly and peacefully in our mind and body, with the world around us.
