Lindsay has made her mark on the illustration industry after encouragement from both parents to pursue a creative career. Whilst studying Graphic Design and Illustration at Columbus College of Art and Design, she earned an award for her advertising campaign for the sloth sanctuary (she loves sloths!) of Costa Rica. She gained local, regional and national recognition with the American Advertising Awards, ‘The Addy’s’. She describes her work as whimsical with a soft sophisticated touch, drawing inspiration from classic Disney artist Mary Blair. Vintage posters, folk and fairy tales and things that are a bit quirky also inspire her. She currently resides in Northeast Ohio with her husband, two dogs Toby &amp;amp; Violet, two bunnies Sam &amp;amp; Pepper and our newest addition - our daughter Nora James.
