About

Lindsay Obermeyer is an artist who specializes in rendering visible the invisible.  Her collaborations with doctors have resulted in her art being collected by several medical foundations.  Her earlier work is in the collection at Boston Museum of Fine Arts.  Her first undergraduate course, holography, perfectly married her twin passions for science and art.  She soon traded in the tedium of the dark room for the binary challenges of the loom.  Her desire to travel post college led to working with the portable mediums of knitting and embroidery.  Floor looms don’t fit in backpacks. Graduate School in Seattle refined her skills and introduced her to the joy of coffee.  After a British Work Visa and 25 years in Chicago, Lindsay has returned to her hometown of St. Louis where she lives down the street from one of the top American medical schools. She shares her home with her daughter, two Papillons and several crates of yarn and beads.
