MEET THE ARTIST
- Start off and tell us your name! Who are you?
My name is Lindsay Haigh aka Linzertart. I got the nickname Linzertart from my husband because I work in a bakery full time, and a Linzertart Tart is a kind of pastry. He has shortened it to just LT now.
- What kind of art do you create and what medium do you work in?
I create whimsical and weird sculptures and reliefs out of polymer clay, acrylic paints, wood, and sometimes fur. My full time job, I sculpt figures out of fondant and Rice Krispie treats.
- When did you know you were an artist?
I’ve always been artistic, as far as I could remember. My art teachers always encouraged me to pursue it. I never knew what form of art I liked better. My BFA is in oil painting, but I haven’t oil painted since college.
- Le Fae is about all things magical fairy! Tell us about why you applied to the show and what inspired the work you made for the curated collection?
I wanted to explore the idea of a fairy that was not typically beautiful and shows a sickness of nature. My “Fallen Fae” is sickly looking, bloated tummy, looking upwards for answers and is connected to the earth around it. I was heavily inspired by old Roman sculptures.
- Where did you hear about Bubble Pop Gallery and what made you want to be in the show?
I heard about it through Instagram and the Isle of Magic.
- Have you ever done a gallery show before? If yes, how many?
Yes, this is my third.
- What is your favorite thing about being a creative?
It’s been fun creating with different mediums. I started last year mostly doing 3D sculpts and then I really started enjoying doing reliefs. Im now doing a mixture of both, but also starting to play with procreate.
- What inspires you?
I’m inspired by nature and animals. Animals are so pure it’s hard not to be inspired by them.
- How does art make the world a better place?
I think it gives people an outlet. For me it’s been great exploring my style and figuring out what and who I am as an artist. It also connects people! I’ve met so many amazing artists through Instagram. It’s so nice to support and be supported other artists and also get inspired by them.
- Where are you located?
Buffalo, New York
- What projects are you working on that you can tell us about?
I’m working on some new “bird houses” and wall hangings and a couple bigger sculpts.
- Where can people find you?
You can find me @linzertart There is a link in my profile for my store. I announce when I have shop drops through my Instagram.
- Anything else you would like to share?
Most of the sculptures I make weekly are edible and it’s nice to know the work I am making and selling at home isn’t getting eaten.
