About the Artist

As a 7th generation Floridian hailing from Sarasota, Lindsey spent her childhood and young adult years exploring the wild spaces of the state, from the pines to the palms. Today, she explores the rhythms and patterns of these vital ecosystems in new ways - through illustrative "coastal motifs" that showcase the diverse flora and fauna unique to each region.

Lindsey holds a Masters in Anthropology and spent 10 years working with the National Park Service and national & state nonprofits in cultural heritage and land preservation. Now a full-time artist, this background strongly influences her art and how she interweaves whimsy, nature and culture into each map and motif. 

Lindsey lives in St. Petersburg, Florida with her husband Luke, and their dog Otis and cat Nicholas. When not creating the next coastal map motif, Lindsey enjoys saltwater fishing, hiking, bird watching, beach walking on Little Gasparilla Island, and planning the next weekend trip.

Where does "Litore" come from?

"Litore" is Latin for "coast" or "shoreline," representing a landscape's deeper history and significance than solely the beauty that is seen.
