Lindsey Rae Archer
Lindsey is an energetically emerging young Albuquerque based artist who is currently involved in projects that include acting, writing, singing and luckily for Jan's Art Shop.....painting.
Her painting style is partially inspired by the art of Zen Tangle, a detailed pen and ink technique that requires focus and discipline.
Interestingly her twelve painting body of work that we currently exhibit is so diverse you could believe each one was created by a different painter.
"I don't block it" she says of her creativity and inspiration. "And I don't judge myself or my artwork."
Things freed up for her with an acting coach who suggests instead of trying to be someone else (when character acting), you should just be you AS that person/character. This was the impetus for her epiphany that "I can be unhappy with stuff that doesn't belong to me OR - I can be happy because I exist." About expectations (and not having them) in regards to her creative process she says: "If something doesn't work right away I don't get sad because I feel like the universe does that better than I do and decides what works or doesn't.
Lindsey was born and grew up in Ohio, then lived in Orlando, FL. She has been gracing Albuquerque with her creative presence since 2007.
