Lindsay Ekstrom is a self-taught, McKinney-based artist who crafts portraits that reveal the unknown histories of well-known Rebels, Founders, and Icons of the past and present. Ekstrom has dubbed her unique style "Portrait Pop" as it is reminiscent of traditional Salon-style portraiture and pop art. Ekstrom simultaneously embraces and subverts the traditions of these art styles. While she frames and positions her subjects in a stately manner, she also brings them down to earth through their humanized portrayal via contemporary fashion, tattoos, and accessories.
