Southwest landscape painter Lindy Cook Severns painted the snow-capped peaks and swollen streams of the Rockies long before she became known as a Big Bend artist.  Taos and Santa Fe have been frequent vacation spots for the Texas artist, with adobes of northeastern New Mexico represented in Lindy's portfolio as both studio paintings as also, artworks done on location, en plein air.  


The Weimunche Wilderness of Southern Colorado and the Pecos Wilderness of  northeastern New Mexico have been campsites for  many of the Severns' tents; Aspen and Telluride were regular flight destinations.  Summer, fall, winter or spring, the Rocky Mountains have beckoned, and this intimacy with the southwest landscape is reflected in the pastel landscape artist | oil painter's richly colored canvases.

Big Bend Artist

Old Spanish Trail Studio

Big Bend Artist Lindy Cook Severns, a seventh generation Texan,  paints real places in the wild American west, high desert ranch lands of Far West Texas and Big Bend country.  Lindy's paintings hang in most every state in the USA, and in England, Australia, Germany and Canada. The pastel landscape painter | oil painter is among 35 artists selected for inclusion in the definitive book TEXAS TRADITIONS, CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS OF THE LONE STAR STATE, Michael Duty and Susan Hallsten McGarry, 2010.  Featured in the national 2016 PBS documentary WESTERN PERSPECTIVE, the southwest landscape painter lives on a working ranch in the Davis Mountains near Ft Davis and Marfa with husband Jim, a stubbornly affectionate rescued terrier and a cranky African Grey parrot who passionately loves art.  Her studio sits across the road from Old Spanish Trail Gallery and Museum, where Lindy is the Artist-In-Residence. Lindy is the recipient of the 2020 Distinguished Alumni Award for the College of Arts & Sciences of Texas Tech University.
