About the Artist
LINDSEY JAEGER (née Kiser) is a visual artist, a practicing attorney of intellectual property law, wife, and mother. An amateur naturalist, she enjoys creating images of wildlife, wildflowers, and landscapes in oil, acrylic, scratchboard, and pen and ink. Recently appointed by Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin to the Kentucky Arts Council, she has enjoyed the detail, light, and drama that may be captured in the unforgiving scratchboard medium for close to 25 years and is an active member of the International Society of Scratchboard Artists.
Lindsey Jaeger produced thirty scratchboards in thirty days, #30paintingsin30days, in January 2017. The scratchboard drawings are 5″x5″ and around the theme of #KentuckyWildlife and #KentuckyWildflowers and will be on display during her live demonstration in the Kentucky Capitol Rotunda in Frankfort, Kentucky on February 20, 2018, as part of the commonwealth’s celebration of Kentucky Arts Day (#KyArtsDay2018).
Today, she is committed to a new series for her upcoming solo exhibition, “Reflecting Nature: The Art of Lindsey Jaeger”, which will be on display at the Boone County Public Library Main Branch in Burlington, Kentucky from March 9 through March 31, 2018.
She has completed about 20 murals in public spaces and many more in private residences in Cincinnati, Ohio, and Kentucky.
Jaeger’s fascination with understanding nature and her budding artistic talents led her to enter and ultimately win Kentucky’s first Junior Duck Stamp Contest with her acrylic painting of a pintail entitled “Pin Stripes.” She published her first limited edition print of her acrylic painting, “Kentucky in Bloom,” in the same year.
Jaeger earned her undergraduate degree in fine art with minors in biology and chemistry from Georgetown College, where she won the coveted “Best of Show” in the Annual Student Art Show. She studied 19th Century British art history under the late Ilaria Bignamini and drawing at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art at the University of Oxford in England. She studied portrait painting under a former president of the Royal Academy of Portrait Painters.
