Artist Spotlight: Lindsay Remfrey

Every we week we get the chance to highlight one of our amazing doodlers! Today we are sharing more about Lindsay Remfrey aka @lindsayremfrey.


Hello! Please can you give us a brief little introduction?

My name is Lindsay and I live in Washington State, USA with my husband and daughter and our furry feline overlords. I was an artsy kid growing up, and I’ve continued to dabble a bit over the years. When we all went into isolation in 2020, I decided to dive back into art to stay busy and mentally engaged. I took a few Skillshare classes, joined a few art challenges, and then found Friday Doodle Club at the beginning of 2021!


I consider myself more of a “maker” than an artist, because I enjoy creating a variety of physical objects and crafts in addition to painting. When I paint, I prefer traditional vs. digital mediums, and I work mostly in watercolor and pencils.


What inspires you?

I love a puzzle! What I enjoy most about the Friday Doodle Club is unraveling the prompts to reveal an image. It feels like a riddle.Every Friday morning my husband and I take a walk and brainstorm ideas; it makes me so happy.


What is your favourite thing to draw?

Anything that makes me laugh or smile. The prompts we work to leave a lot of room for silly or weird interpretations, and I really enjoy working on a painting and having a chuckle at what I’m making.


What art goals do you have for this year?

I’ve recently gone back to school (not for art) so I’ve become quite busy. I think my primary goal for the rest of this year is to keep making time to be creative. I really need that balance in my life, and the weekly prompts are a great reminder to take that time for myself. Also, I’ve been doing all my prompts in one sketchbook this year, so it’ll be satisfying to finally fill that up!


What techniques/supplies do you use?

Schmincke and Daniel Smith watercolors are my go-to paints. I do all my paintings in an Etchr sketchbook that I just love. For line work I use the Micron fineliners in black or sepia. And my colored pencil collection is a tiny bit out of hand: Derwent, Prismacolor, and Irojiten are my mainstays.


What advice would you give to another doodler/artist?

Just keep creating! The routine of creation will build your physical and imaginative skill sets.


Don’t stress about how “good” you are. For every proficiency level, there’s someone else wishing they were as good as you.
