Lindsay Kreighbaum ’12

Class of 2012, Major in Art with concentrations in Photography and Studio Art

I feel pretty lucky that I am still doing today what I pursued when I was 18! In college, I had numerous internships assisting artists, working at printing studios, and even photographing for an online clothing company. After college, I worked at a portrait studio in Manhattan’s Upper East Side before relocating to the West Coast.
