She received her BFA with a concentration in painting at the University of New Hampshire. She now works as a freelance puppeteer with a collection of about one hundred beautifully handcrafted, life size puppets. She travels around New England, entertaining kids 3-8. What a day job!

Her artistic opportunities in the past include teaching an adult drawing course, illustrating a children's book manuscript, working as assistant on a large scale installation piece for the Currier Museum, painting in Italy and India, a yearlong fellowship with the UNH art gallery, and a few summers spent working as a charcoal portrait artist near her childhood home in the Lakes Region.
Lindsay has had two solo shows at Ampers& Studio in Newmarket, NH. One was entitled "Faces of Newmarket" featuring portraits in oil and charcoal of fifty friends and locals....here's an excerpt from her artist's statement:
"Inevitably, each time I paint someone, there occurs a quiet, intimate moment when it seems the initial oddness of the situation has worn off and we have settled into an exchange of mutual trust. Each of us entirely present, I feel a sense of intense joy and focus. It is an interesting challenge to capture the spirit of somebody by looking really closely at her nose...
...Rather than clusters of islands, we are links in interlocking circles. It takes surprisingly little effort to see the connections and to discover, or rediscover, this structure...and one another. This show aims to highlight the beauty of that simple powerful thing: recognition. Yes, we can say...I see you too."
