Extra Info:
Lindsay is dedicated to making art that helps people remember what is essential to being. Her commitment to being creative throughout the progression of the disease is an act of empowerment and defiance as much as it is one of acceptance and surrender. Lindsay began her artistic career in puppetry and performance. Her writing on ritual through puppetry and the use of the idol in art was published in The New York Arts Magazine’s summer 2011 issue. In 2012, shortly before she was diagnosed with ALS, Lindsay debuted two puppet works in NYC. After living and working in NYC for the past 12 years, Lindsay moved to the Toshiko Takaezu Studio in Quakertown, NJ as an artist in residence in June of 2015. She is now exploring painting and bodywork using her feet, while also giving energy to writing, gardening and cooking.
