Artwork and creative collaborations.
Lindsay Carron is an art activist who utilizes creative mediums as conduits for knowledge. Through connection and integration in various indigenous communities and wildernesses, she artfully bridges cultures and the traditional and modern world. Her aim is to create art that unites, empowers, educates, and provides hope for the planet, connecting us back to nature and back to ourselves.
Lindsay received a B.F.A. in Studio Art from Pepperdine and continued on global adventures after graduating. In Mexico and Kenya she painted murals, created portraits, and lead art workshops focused on empowering individuals and communities. On the West Coast, Lindsay led two summers of creative activism workshops for youth with Creative Visions Foundation.
Lindsay’s artwork found a home in the wilderness as she focused her attention on a beloved species – the wolf. With California Wolf Center she educated and raised funds with her art. Then in service to the oceans, she painted murals on storm drains about urban runoff and protecting coastal ecosystems with the City of Malibu. Most recently, Lindsay painted a two-story mural featuring the Salish Sea orcas at The Whale Museum on San Juan Island.
In Alaska, Carron has found a strong resonance for the purpose of her work. Brought up to Juneau by Adventure Flow to lead painting excursions, she fell in love with the rugged wild land. Her artwork was exhibited in a solo show at Juneau Arts and Humanities Council, and she illustrated three children’s books with Native Organization Sealaska Heritage. As an artist in residence with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Arctic National Wildlife Refuge she created artwork featuring the Gwitch’in at Arctic Village. She is returning to the Refuge, this time to the North Slope and Kaktovik, an Inupiaq Eskimo village on the Arctic Coast, summer of 2017.
Lindsay lives and works between Los Angeles, California and Juneau, Alaska.

On what has been inspiring me.
Spring 2017 Upcoming Art Shows and Events: The deep dreaming of the season is giving way to many wonderful opportunities to share my artwork and continue my dance in service to the earth and all of her children. Dance, medicine, art and song have blessed my life with bliss, expression, and adventure, and I’m so excited to continue to share it all with you.
