I PAINT IN HEELS (SOMETIMES)

Cool Version: 

Hi, I'm Lindsay. Im a DC based creative entrepreneur mostly illustrating and painting on things. During the day, I am a Communications and Brand Consultant, focusing social media and digital strategy and content development. After that and an hour of yoga, Im painting, or working with clients to tackle their artistic needs. My preferred medium is watercolor and ink, but I've began to develop a knack for digital abstracts. 

I can paint just about anything, anywhere (the joy of watercolors). I love and live self care, art, fashion, yoga, and paint.  I co-host Watercolor + Yoga workshops, teaching students how to tap into their creative senses. 

Want me to live paint, illustrate, or do live lettering? Interested in hosting a watercolor party, or just want to talk art, illustration, fashion, or books? Shoot me an email at ipaintinheels@gmail.com. 

Professional Short Bio:

Artist, Lindsay Adams, a DMV Native, uses her corporate career and world studies to communicate different interpretations of art forms through painting and drawing.  She began drawing and painting at an early age. While attending a youth summer camp at Corcoran College of Art & Design, she began tightening her skills, and devoted more time to her art. In high school, she received diligent instruction and guidance, and took Drawing and Painting as a major course. Along with her artistic fervor, Lindsay is also passionate about diversity and inclusion awareness, foreign language, and fashion. After participating in Model United Nations for two years, she decided that in college, she would study Foreign Relations. Lindsay received two Bachelor of Arts in International Studies, with a concentration in World Politics and Diplomacy, and Spanish from the University of Richmond. During the day she is a management consultant for a top consulting firm, where she is a Strategic Communications Strategist, specializing in brand strategy and social media. She is passionate about storytelling and using words and art to capture the essence of identity. 

She is passionate about diversity and inclusion, art , education, and of course, art! She lives by self-care, long baths, lit candles, and journaling. Her passion for art as a personal form of expression began at a young age. She has been living with and overcoming Cerebral Palsy since birth, and art has always been her serene outlet to find peace in what can often be chaos. Her life mantra which is also permanently tattooed on her side is Protect Your Peace.  As the hands behind #ipaintinheels, she continues to spread love through painting and storytelling. 

Some of her biggest projects include, Gentlewoman by Enintan Bereola, Chic from A to Z Coloring Book for Kahlana Barfield,  Fashion and Beauty Editor of Instyle Magazine, and many more.
