Lindsey began sewing in 2017 when she was pregnant with her first child as a way to build a cozy nest of colorful fabrics. After losing herself for a year in the all-consuming task of mothering she began quilting as a way to once again keep her family warm and cozy. Not satisfied with wasting scraps of fabric, she began to create wall hangings with the off-cuts of larger quilts. Lindsey is a self-taught sewist. She began quilting in earnest in 2018.
Her previous body of work was in pastels and she had several shows in the DC area before moving to Seattle in 2016. Lindsey was a member of the Arlington Artists Alliance and displayed her work at several venues including: the Del Ray Artisans Gallery for March Melee, an exhibit of aggressive art (group), Toby’s Homemade Ice Cream (solo), The Java Shack for Spring in Bloom: a solo show celebrating the seasons (solo), Arlington County Fair (group, award winner), ArtFest Week at Fort C.F. Smith Park (group), Cassatt’s Cafe & Gallery (group), It’s a Steal (group), Holiday Inn Arlington, at Ballston (group).
