Lindsey Frances Illustration



Hello there!

I’m a painter born in Boston but living in New York City as a New Englander in exile.

As a lifelong painter and art marker since childhood—I learned to always create things alongside my artist mother and grandmother—I work in watercolor and gouache, pen and ink, acrylics, and collage on paper primarily. I am inspired to paint the frenetic nature of every day urban life most of all. I strive to tell stories about how the patchwork of history, people, plants, and animals make cities records of our collective American daily life.

I am currently working on a children’s illustration book dummy about bodega cats in New York City. Let’s talk about it!

I graduated with a degree in individualized studies, focusing on Urban and American Studies at New York University’s Gallatin School. Since then, I’ve studied illustration and fine arts at the School of Visual Arts, FIT, and 92nd Street Y in New York City. My work has been featured by a Brooklyn CSA, an educational publisher, and in private designs and commissions. I sell limited prints on Etsy, too.

I’m open to projects and commissions of all kinds.
