Teaching Artist // Whether she’s painting at her easel, hiking in the ravine behind her house with her four-year-old son Townes, or steaming milk and pouring coffee at Javas, Linsay is equally at home. Born and raised in Connecticut, she came to Rochester to study illustration and art education at RIT (she holds a BFA in Illustration and MST in Art Education). While she loves living in the city of Rochester, she holds a place in her heart for Jackson, Wyoming, her other home. She returns to Jackson yearly to teach art, explore the mountains, and enjoy the everyday with her family. An artist, teacher, and nature lover, Linsay draws inspiration for her artwork and lesson plans from the abundant landscape, creatures, and people that surround.
