Amy Sandys-Lumsdaine

An Artist & Print Maker based in Nairobi

Amy was born in Calcutta, India into a family of Tea Merchants. After schooling at Downe House, Amy completed a Foundation at Middlesex Univesity and then went on to gain a Bsc Hons and Msc in Textile Design at UMIST in Manchester.  She then worked in the fashion trade in Bond St, London before heading out to Kenya in 1997 to pursue a career as an artist.


"This move from the urban jungle of London to the Great Rift valley had a profound and positive effect on me creatively.  The sense of freedom and adventure was tangible and I started to sketch and paint to document these adventures and share my experiences."


"Kenya has such a diverse range of natural environments, peoples, birds and animals. There's incredible beauty in it's raw, untamed wilderness, mountains, deserts, the laid back rhythm of life along the coast and the fusion of cultures found in the Lamu archipelago."


"My paintings are profoundly influenced by my life and experiences of Kenya for over 26 years, a tribute to Kenya, and express my connection to Nature and the Natural World.  Being part of Seedballs Kenya is my way to contributing to the preservation of this fascinating and beautiful country that I adore.  Drawing on my background in textile design I assimilate patterns and repeats found in Nature & also the tribal crafts such as the textiles &  jewellery of Northern Kenya and architecture of Lamu, Africa and Asia which I place on canvas and frame and pay homage to the fusion of the diverse Cultures found here -  an exotic blend of African, Arabic, European and Asian. "
