Lindy Kehoe enjoys living a spacious and peaceful life, choosing to reflect that quality within her dream-like work. Contemplative and quiet, her paintings are portals into the subtle realms of remembrance, shape-shifting in care of the viewer.
Her mediums include oil paints on canvas, acrylic, earth pigments (stoneground), clay-based eco paints, water colors and ink on paper. The body of work on this sight reflects a decade of painting after her studies at Ohio University, where she received her Bachelors of Fine Art, focusing on Art Education. As a certified Art Educator for kindergarten through high school, she has taught in many fashions and ages. This journey brought her to Napa, California, where she taught as a Middle School Art teacher at River School in 2006-2007.
Called to the Northern Landscape and Rivers, she moved to the Rogue Valley of Oregon, where she fell in love, and illustrated Star Hawk’s “Last Wild Witch”, published by Mother Tongue Ink of We’Moon.
She received a Silver “Nautilus Award” for her illustrations. Lindy’s work has been featured in “Spirituality in Health Magazine”. Her work has been internationally published since 2004 in the We ‘Moon Calendar books and Wall Calendars. Her work has been shown in galleries and festivals across the west coast, with Art Visionary Masters including Alex Grey, Martina Hoffman, and Mark Henson.
Lindy is currently weaving together her many images into a story book that she hopes to have available by spring of 2012, called “Urial and Arianna and the Transformation of the Worlds.” She considers this a book for all ages that reads like poetry and finds itself to be an inter-dimensional journey through time and space.
The Hemporium started out as a small store called Hemp Underground. It was a dungeon-like space located in the Underground Marketplace in Ashland, Oregon. It’s hard to make a difference when nobody knows you exist… so we have since sprouted into a full grown street level store with just about 7 times the space we had before. We are now able to provide more space for our fellow Earth lovers to showcase and sell their sustainable materials clothing! Most of our product is designed in the Pacific North West, a few of them even live right here in Ashland.
We want to make sustainable materials household items for everyone, while helping propel our own local economy!
