I can't quite remember just how I came across Lindsay's instagram. I vaguely remember seeing her artwork in my midnight insta game, traveling down the loophole of tags and finally reaching her account. Immediately I found myself scrolling (pretty far back on the timeline) and deeply appreciating the honesty and beauty she so easily displayed. The more I get to know Lindsay, the more I am inspired by her humility, talent, and kindness. She agreed to a quick chat and I couldn't be more excited to feature her.
Once you get to know her a bit better below be sure to give her a follow (@lindsaybriadams) - her ease in her creativity is undeniable!
CATCHING UP WITH LINDSAY
What was the last thing you were inspired by?
"I get inspired by so many things everyday. I just got a few new books and was browsing 'I Too Sing America, The Harlem Renaissance at 100.' I cant believe it's been 100 years, and Im so inspired by the creative strides and uplift of our community, and the ability to really embrace creativity and the arts."
What's something people don’t really know about you?
"I would say it's probably the fact that I have Cerebral Palsy. I am very open about it, but people don't really know when they first meet me"
How have you been balancing this new lifestyle of stay at home?
"Staying at home has come with so many amazing creative strides for me, but I also really miss being out and about. Safety first!"
