I'm a South African-born artist who, after 47 years in my home country, spent 14 years in Connemara in Ireland. Presently I live and work on the coast in Brittany in France.


This is "Dude" (below) and he's introducing the fact that I'm going with a new concept here. The Early Bird paintings (of which "Dude" is one).

It's kind of like my own version of a pop-up shop but with a twist ... an Early Bird special prices twist.

I'm thinking of doing this, twice a year, on a bigger scale to include other artists' work too ... no charge, just a fun event.

If you're an artist and are interested in this concept, please let me know. I'll host it so you don't have to hassle with complicated website "stuff".



I live a peaceful life, painting every day, using as many different mediums as I feel happy with, and I hope that this passion and compulsion keeps my work fresh and growing ... with a large stock of work for you to choose from.

I hope you find a little gem here for yourself, or as a gift for someone special, and if you do, please email me for the price at this address: lyndacookson@gmail.com

Many of my paintings, some still available and others sold by now, can be enjoyed on the Image Collages page if you'd like to have a look.

Keeping in touch is easy from my Paintings on Impulse blog.
