Lindsay Kaye Kayser has had a passion for art, since the age of four. She is the daughter of Carol and Thomas Kayser, and grew up in Corydon. Lindsay graduated from Iowa State University in 2015, where she got a B.A. in Advertisement and minored in English and Critical Studies of Design. She does not focus on just one medium and is always up to trying something new. Her favorite mediums of art to work with are photography, painting, and graphic design.
Most of her subjects she expresses in art form are music related. She loves repurposing broken instruments and scratched vinyl records. Her recent piece “Wanderlust” is a broken cello with hand carved vinyl record butterflies winding up the neck of the cello. The meaning behind it is no matter how broken you may feel not to give up and spread your wings to look for new adventures.
With her passion of music, she watched some of her favorite bands start out small and progressively grow over time. They inspired her to never give up on art and to never be afraid to take risks. The quote that she lives by is by the band that started her passion of music, when they first started off, the Jonas Brothers, “Live like you’re at the bottom even if you are at the top.” It reminds her to think back to where she has started and to not loose her grounding.
While in college Lindsay interned with Maximum Ames Records in Ames, Iowa and is now part co-owner of the label. Lindsay is an active freelance artist and does work for bands like Halsey, The Roads Below, and Smallpools. She also works with two authors, designing their book covers, Robyn Leatherman and Kimberly Diehl.
WAYCO Arts Council is pleased to welcome again Lindsay to the Corydon State Bank display during June, 2018.
