I took a little detour from life in Juneau, Alaska to hop on over to San Juan Island and paint a storm drain mural for The Whale Museum. Executive Director Jenny Atkinson was super inspired by the storm drains that I had painted for the City of Malibu last year that she requested a Giant […]
MK MacNaughton A restaurant, a street corner, a public art installation and some propane tanks. These were the elements present in the (artful) directions I received upon organizing a visit to the studio of MK MacNaughton, a prolific Juneau artist that I was told I must meet. With success, I stepped into MK’s bright and […]

“Stories set the inner life into motion, and this is particularly important where the inner life is frightened, wedged, or cornered. Story greases the hoists and pulleys, it causes adrenaline to surge, shows us the the way out, down, or up, and for our trouble, cuts for us fine wide doors in previously blank walls, […]
Lindsay grew up in Wisconsin where the appreciation of nature and adventure became deeply engrained. Her move cross-country to her present home in Los Angeles opened many doors, beginning with her education at Pepperdine University and continuing through her numerous global journeys. She has collaborated with communities on public art projects from New York to Kenya and has participated in gallery shows throughout the United States. Art is a way for her to digest the bountiful information presented in this world and translate it into a medium that is passionate and powerful.
Utilizing visual mediums to engage the connection between all beings in a way that inspires action, provokes consciousness and responsibility, and empowers both subject and viewer of the work.
We have arrived at a crossroads in evolutionary life on the planet. We can either carry on the way we have been for the past 100 years, or together we can leap into a new vision of coexistence.
As gatekeepers of these crossroads, artists utilize their mediums to transcribe visions and birth new realities. The responsibility of the artist as visionary has never been greater than today. This is a role Lindsay Carron is honored to take on as she travels to dynamically different areas of the planet to absorb the knowledge held in the elements, plants, animals, and people of these lands. These seeds of wisdom are then shared with a global audience through her pen and ink drawings, murals, installations, and experimental embodiment of art.
Lindsay’s meticulously rendered images and playful practices coax us out of the concrete cage of domestication and ignite a deep remembering of the wild within, so that we may be guided by instinct and intuition and live with courageous, untamed hearts. Deeply engrained in her creations are tools for masterful living, so that when the times demand it, we can, without fear, take the necessary leap.
