Lindsay Florence grew up in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania where she showed a keen interest in art at a young age. Lindsay was enrolled in various art programs including classes at Chester County Art Association and the Delaware School of Art Design to further hone her skills. It was during these years of artistic education that she connected with the nature of realism. In 2007 she earned a BFA from Alfred University School of Art & Design with a concentration in painting and glassblowing. After graduating, Lindsay displayed her work at the Kathleen Cullen Fine Arts Gallery in NYC; exhibited for charitable fundraisers in Delaware, and participated in many juried shows and auctions in Pennsylvania and throughout New England. In 2009 Lindsay was awarded “Emerging Artist of the Year” by Arts Alive in Burlington, Vermont, and in 2010 was awarded "Juror's Choice" from The Cambridge Art Association in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
After spending several years living in New England, Lindsay and her husband decided to relocate back to Pennsylvania, closer to Philadelphia. It was upon moving here in 2014 that she had her first solo exhibition at the Grand Opera House in Wilmington, DE and was accepted into the Philadelphia mural arts training program. upon completing the program, she assisted on several large scale murals including “Sanctuary” (designed by James Burns S 13th and Chancellor St.). “American Tableau” a mural on the VA Hospital located in west Philadelphia (designed by James Burns), and “Water Gives Life” (designed by Eurhi Jones and David McShane 13th and Arch st.). Lindsay was lead artist on the North Philadelphia health systems mural, “Journey to Resilience” (designed by James Burns 8th and Girard Ave). She has also assisted on private commissions including a mural for the Philadelphia Zoo’s owl and Eagle exhibit (designed by Emily White). It was the experience from these murals that inspired her to make the switch from an oil painter to an acrylic painter. Currently, Lindsay is focused on expanding her own body of work in this new medium with undertones of personal reflection and healing. She lives outside of Philadelphia with her husband, and growing family.
