A painting's potential for immediate change is a liberating agent: intuition is the most important part. I am stirred by travel and new landscapes, and key elements in my paintings reference the natural world: weather patterns, tectonic shifts, fields in bloom. I often paint 'big' so that I feel overwhelmed by my own paintings, much as I do at the first step of a mountain I wish to ascend. But I also paint very small in order to remember and capture the subtly of a texture, sound, light, or feeling experienced while doing something simple and quotidien like talking an afternoon walk or looking out my window.

Lindsey earned a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York, and a Master of Arts in Painting from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. She spent formative years living in Southern California and abroad. While firmly rooted in her home state of Connecticut, foreign lands, open spaces and wild topography continue to inspire her compositions.

Professionally, Lindsey works in the Education Department at the country's oldest art museum, the Wadsworth Atheneumm Museum of Art. She is an Adjunct Professor in the Fine Arts departments at University of Connecticut, Storrs, and Manchester Community College. Lindsey is also an enthusiastic bluegrass and folk musician.
