Painter Lindsay Scott believes that an artist should paint what they know and are passionate about. Accordingly, her art focuses on the wildlife of her native Africa as well as that of her current home in North America. Scott has studied nature and wildlife from various viewpoints. Scott previously worked as a botanical researcher and as a curator of paleobotany and ornithology. These additional careers provided her with a strong knowledge of the structures of various plants and animals. Scott's art classes in Cape Town, South Africa, emphasized abstraction. In order to practice her realist style of art, she enrolled in botany, biology and zoology and completed numerous field sketches of plants and wildlife, which offered her the opportunity to practice her drafting technique.
