Following is an exclusive short interview for Hue&Eye.
Hello Linsdey, when or how have you understood you wanted to become an artist?
I always wanted to make colorful, happy, fun, usually girly, sometimes sporty, light-hearted, thought-provoking stuff. After working in a more traditional 9 to 5, I decided I was tired of it and wanted to give full-time freelance a go.
Can you briefly say something about your technique and tell us what drives you to make art?
I’m a digital and commercial illustrator who creates colorful and fun illustrations and lettering. The drive to make art comes from my desire to make things more beautiful, fun, and joyous!
What main feature has changed in your works or practice throughout the years?
I’ve developed some signature motifs and “stickers” that reappear repeatedly and make my work recognizable through the years.
Which artist primarily inspires your work? And is there something else, outside visual arts, that keeps you motivated?
How would you like people to engage with your work?
I want people to leave happier after seeing my work.
