I'm a 26 year old with a lifelong passion for writing that I'd love to turn into a career. This is my first time dipping my toe into the world of freelancing, but it is mesmerizing to me for many reasons. I left college after three years without earning my bachelors degree, but that was strictly due to concerns about debt, and had nothing to do with my academic capability. I took many English and writing classes during that time, and they were consistently my favorite and strongest subjects. I'm willing to take the time to improve my writing, to learn about different writing opportunities, and do the best job I can possible do any time I am called upon. If you'd like writing samples you can check my blog- www.frightinsight.weebly.com. That is my small blog dedicated to reviewing horror movies. I do have writing samples on other subjects, but that is all I have posted online at this time.

Lindsey Kate Meyer, an experienced fashion illustrator, works with clients of all degrees of experience. She has worked nationally and internationally with bloggers, stylists, personal shoppers, online retailers, catalogs, fashion trackers, corporate companies, fashion and accessory designers, and many individuals to create custom illustrations, designs, and logos. Graduating as Valedictorian from Columbia College Chicago with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Fashion Design and minor in Art History, Lindsey knows the ins and outs of the fashion community from concept to creation and sales. Lindsey has not only had many fashion creations on the runway, but has also created couture accessories for fashion and hair shows, and has done concept design, styling, and makeup for photo shoots. She very much values the relationships of the collected fashion and artistic world and loves finding inspiration within her contacts as well as in all aspects of her life. Illustrating, often under strict deadlines, Lindsey seeks to create work that is captivating and fresh, constantly exploring new techniques and media. Her primary materials to work with are marker and watercolour, but she also often works with pencil, acrylic, gouache, colored pencil, ink, and other mixed media. Creating work that captures the elegance, beauty, and confidence of the female form is something she strives to convey in each piece. Lindsey enjoys working with new people and new ideas, with the opportunity to alter the mood and portray new ideas each time. However, she also finds inspiration in studying historic illustrators and their talents. With this knowledge, as well as a proficient understanding of color theory, textiles, construction, fit, and concept design allows her to successfully illustrate technically accurate designs. Contact Lindsey to commission work in creative or concept design, to interpret your fashion ideas, self or business promotion, special occasion illustration, advertising, editorial, or logo design. She can be reached at info@lindsey-kate.com or lindseykatemeyer@gmail.com and would love to hear your idea for your unique fashion illustration need. ADDITIONAL SPECIALTIES -Bridal Illustration- Illustrating brides is something Lindsey has always had an interest in. Drawn to the style and sentiment attached to a woman’s most extraordinary day is what Lindsey finds really appealing. Capturing this elegance and uniqueness that each bride possesses is the idea behind her one-of-a-kind illustrations. While working as an alterations specialist in a bridal gown store she gained a better understanding of a woman’s wedding day and the individuality that each bride strives to feel. This is what she attempts to exemplify through her work as a bridal illustrator. Each piece can be customized to match the bride’s hair, makeup, accessories, and gown. With a choice of paper, media, and pose-these illustrations not only make a great piece for the wall alongside a wedding photo, but also make a wonderful gift for newlyweds and anniversaries. She typically works on an 11”x14” scale for these pieces, but can customize the work to match nearly any dimensions. To view her custom bridal illustration portfolio visit www.lindsey-kate.com/custom-bridal-illustration or contact her at info@lindsey-kate.com to learn more. -Acrylic Painting- Not only is Lindsey Kate involved in the art of fashion illustration, but she has a strong passion for painting as well. Specializing in pure and partial abstraction, as well as Abstract Expressionism, Lindsey works primarily with acrylic on canvas. Many of her pieces are inspired by the natural world which she believes connects everyone both physically and spiritually. Modern art and the theory behind it have always been Lindsey’s areas of interest and it continues to motivate her and her creations. It is the emotional involvement in the work that really intrigues her, not just in the creative process, but even more so in the viewing of the finished product. She hopes that the work she creates can evoke an emotional response for each and every person, allowing them to get lost in the expanses and interaction of color. No two people’s interaction with the piece will probably ever be the same, she believes. Even within one viewer, as their mood changes so can the aura of the piece, making abstract art endlessly exciting. Lindsey Kate creates custom original work, but her pieces can also be printed on canvas and purchased as enlargements. To view her acrylic painting portfolio visit www.lindsey-kate.com/paintings. To contact her about work or purchasing a print, email her at info@lindsey-kate.com. RESUME -OBJECTIVE- I am looking for a position as a fashion illustrator-including beauty, design, or fabric illustration.
