For now, let's get to know Lindsay!

Tell us a little about your shop and your art.

Lime Green Jewelry Box
I have been making art since I was old enough to hold a crayon. In high school I started painting seriously and by the time I was in college I had a pretty extensive collection of pieces. I love bold colors and modern abstract style. Since college I have integrated my interior design degree with my love for art by offering people custom paintings for their homes and businesses and that is where the LW Custom Art business started. A couple of years ago between clients I started sculpting cupcakes out of polymer clay to put on my Christmas tree. I was posting them on my facebook page when a friend of mine told me about etsy.

When did you start turning old stuff into new creations?

I recently started to put more time and effort into my Etsy shop since I have been working in a small boutique that takes vintage furniture, paints it and sells it. The store has started selling its items on Etsy and when I saw the success we were having I decided I should give it a try.  One day the owner of the store brought in the most beautiful bright pink, painted vintage jewelry box. My fiancé bought it for me as a Christmas gift and that’s when the light bulb went off. I could combine my love of jewelry, interior design and painting all into one!

Hot Pink and Gold Jewelry Box
Who are the important folks/critters in your life?

My mom has always supported my art. She had paid for and driven me to more art classes as a child than I can count. Her and my dad both supported me when I went to art school in NYC and also when I decided to offer art classes of my own. My fiancé is also a big supporter of my art. I have basically turned his apartment into my studio. It’s a disaster in there and he just smiles and lets me make my messes. He’s so good to me. 

Where do you take your inspiration from? 

I truly believe that inspiration comes from everywhere. That’s probably why I am always involved in multiple types of projects. Lately I have been getting a lot of inspiration from other Etsy shops. The artists on Etsy are so talented. 

What other passions do you have in life?

Sunny Yellow Jewelry Box
I am an avid cyclist. I have done several fund raiser events for cancer research, children’s programs, and this year will be my first time joining the MS 150 where we will be riding 150 miles from Rhode Island to Massachusetts to raise money for multiple sclerosis. I am also a huge animal lover and will be donating a portion of money from my wedding to the humane society. I think it’s really important to advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves. 

What do you want readers to know about you or your art?

I just want my art to bring happiness and inspiration to people.
