Lindsay Smith Gustave lives and works in Denver, Colorado.
Raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, Lindsay has expressed a lifelong interest in art as well as biology, psychology, and natural sciences. She left the South for Colorado in 2003 to attend the University of Denver where she received her BFA with Honors in printmaking in 2007. She returned to the University of Denver for her Master's in Art History which she was awarded in 2014.
Her practice is concept-driven, lending itself to a variety of media that best conveys ideas related to the intersection between nature, science, and art. She is inspired by medical textbooks she began exploring as a child, her mother's creative endeavors in fabric, her grandmother's dedication to the art of french beading, and personal explorations in psychology, natural sciences, and the beauty of the surrounding landscape.
While she hopes to focus her efforts on art making, she also has interest in collaborations with local arts organizations and future curatorial opportunities. She has volunteered and interned with PlatteForum and MCA Denver and served on the Board of Directors of CultureHaus, a support group of the Denver Art Museum. She spends the majority of her time now exploring Colorado with her husband, one-year-old son, and two dogs.
