Hi there, I'm Lindsey.
I grew up in rural Kansas playing outside, painting, drawing, and playing sports. I studied Illustration at the University of Kansas and am currently living in Lawrence, KS with my family and our jungle of house plants.
I find inspiration in nature, animals, books, people, and traveling. My illustrations are made with a variety of materials. I love the mouthwatering juiciness of oil paint, the independence watercolor, the history of found paper, the simplicity of pencil and pen, and all the rabbit holes that are revealed by carving linoleum block to create pattern and repetition.
Making children's books is my way of combining all of my loves. I hope you enjoy.
