Lindsay Obermeyer's Profile

About

I’ve been stitching, sewing, knitting and otherwise making for longer than I can remember. Both parents are what you might call crafty individuals, but it was my grandmothers who encouraged and indulged my passion for all things textile. I had my first “business” at 13, when I sold hand painted hair ribbons through my mother’s clothing store.

These days I live in St. Louis with my daughter Emily and two zany dogs, Josie and Tooney in a 100 year old home filled with stained glass windows. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been an artist for 20 years. My art has been exhibited in the US and abroad at museums including New York’s Museum of Art and Design, the Boston Museum of Fine Art and the Milwaukee Museum of Art.

When I’m not knitting, crocheting, or up to other tomfoolery in the studio, I am cooking, eating, gardening, traveling or reading. I love coffee shops, mysteries, Thai food, dark chocolate, red wine, blue water, pink roses, giggling, London, Paris, memoirs, tempera paint, and oh yes, French. Enjolive is the first person singular in French for “to embellish, to adorn.” In my opinion, life is to be just that – enjoyed and embellished.

This winter I had a stroke and managed to survive and am back to walking, talking, and knitting. With every purchase you make, I will donate 10% of the purchase price to the National Stroke Association.
