My name is Lindsey and I'm a Graphic Designer, Artist, Business Owner, and Educator with over 8+ years working with clients to express their ideas from concept to final delivery. I received a B.F.A. with a concentration in Metal from SUNY New Paltz in New York, and currently live in the Finger Lakes Region of New York. Born and raised in New York State near the Appalachian Mountains, but my creative spirit lives far and beyond.
I have a diverse creative background ranging from graphic design, branding, photography, illustration, metalworking, jewelry, 3D printing, and video editing. Because of my history, I think outside of the box and pride myself on my visual and conceptual creativity.
My work has been mentioned in five publications and has attracted notable clients, including:
The United States Department of Agriculture and Markets,
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation,
The Ohio, Virginia, and Oklahoma Department of Agriculture,
The Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey,
Finger Lakes Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management
Northeastern University, Boston MA (invited as a Guest Lecturer for their design program)
Craft & COMMUNITY
With my studio practice and my personal time, I drive a wedge into the mundane by creating objects and educational programs that push definitive boundaries.
Through marrying digital technology and traditional craft, I design and create futuristic homewares, otherworldly jewelry, and sculptures at massive scale. I strive to question our ingrained ideas about formality, traditional craft techniques, and our relationships with objects.
I also co-founded IDEA Collective, a sustainable toy company and mobile art classroom that integrates creativity and STEAM education with environmental studies to inspire the next generation of mindful creatives. It is my highest excitement to inspire young people to learn with their hands, trust their creative impulses, and enjoy the journey of making.
