Welcome to Pinz Prints! The name comes from a childhood nickname given to me by my dad and a process in art that I truly enjoy. My name is Lindsay Wede and I love the field of Art and find it everywhere! As part of a team of amazing art teachers at Ames High School, I currently work with art students in a variety of art classes and with the Ames High Art Club and NAHS. I strive to make a difference and I consider myself a lifelong learner. I love working with students and my own child on creative challenges. Whenever I can, I invest time in creating art. My inspiration comes from exploring places, meeting new people, and spending time with my family and friends. Like myself, this site is a work in progress.Browse the site to learn more and continue to check in. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you!
My goal is to create meaningful artwork that you truly enjoy!
BOOKS: As my own family and extended family have grown, I have found great joy in writing and illustrating children's books that are inspired by these very special people. I strive to make them educational and engaging to lots of readers. More information on my books can be found on the next tab and link below. http://www.pinzprints.com/books.html.
COMMISSIONS: I am available for commissions! There are many possibilities for me to create something specifically for you! I'm constantly inspired to create art and I push myself to develop new pieces. I especially enjoy drawing, painting, and printmaking. Just let me know what I can do for you! I have experience in making a variety of things. Some ideas of what I do are listed below. I can... -make wedding invitations and programs -draw your homestead or create a print of your community. -sketch, paint or print people and/or objects you hold dear to your heart. -personalize baby clothing (or any clothing really) -make paintings based on pages of children's books or other childhood fancies for their rooms. -mold handmade clay jewelry to symbolize something important to you -decorate a variety of things from work benches to turtle shells to lampshades and more!
SPECIAL CLASSES/SESSIONS: I enjoy working in Art and with people and would be willing to arrange individual and/or small group art sessions for you and/or your child too. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for the above requests about books and more and if you have ways for me to connect and use my art to help the community and beyond.
Contact me at Lindsay.email@example.com if you want to help me connect our students with more art opportunities in the community and beyond! Some of my favorite projects with them are the Memory Project and painting ceiling tiles for the Mary Greeley Hospital.
