This is a potluck event so bring a dish or drink to share!
This month we welcome Lindsay Ekstrom as our guest speaker! Lindsay will talk about her journey as an artist and how she went from painting in a garage to a 4,500 sq. ft. studio!
Lindsay Ekstrom, is a self taught Dallas based artist. Her paintings are inspired by cultural icons, both modern and historic.
"I love a good story. Give me all the juicy details of an icon, dead or alive. As I study these icons, with every fact and anecdote, their image develops in my mind. After weeks of research, I can see them as if they are standing next to me. It is then, I start the portrait.
"I don't just put historic people in modern clothes for a laugh. The fashion, the colors they wear, even their body language, are all symbols that tell their life story."
Her many original paintings are owned by collectors across the globe. Limited signed and numbered giclee prints are available of these original portraits through several retailers.
