Artist statement :
Her personal work often combines drawing, collage, manipulated photographs and found objects, both natural and man made. She says this about it:
My work is an exploration of personal metaphors represented by simple tokens from nature such as a shadow, stone or branch. The work often serves as markers or reminders of events, realizations or truths from my journey. My process involves approaching the subject matter through a variety of media and discovering connections and relationships through the artmaking process. My goal is also to capture simple beauty and nuances in nature and to bring them into view.
Ms. Lindsey earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design, with a minor in Advertising Journalism from North Texas State University in Denton, Texas. She has also done graduate study in printmaking.
