Lynsey Nelson grew up in Santa Cruz, California where she discovered many different art forms at a young age. She spent a large amount of her youth painting and then went on to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Photography and Journalism. Towards the end of her degree she was called back to her family’s interest in Printmaking and eventually returned to school at Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, OR to get her Master of Fine Art in Print Media. Her interest in different art forms is always changing and pushing her art skills to help her better understand what beauty, femininity and identity mean to her.
