Lindgren began her art education at the Nova Scotia College of Art. Majoring in Sculpture she received her MFA from the Royal State Academy of Fine Arts in Amsterdam; Art History at Universities of Amsterdam, Windsor & Algomau; and a BFA at Algoma University, Sault Saint Marie ON.
Living in Holland for many years, Lindgren taught art classes at elementary schools; private studio classes in sculpture and casting; and also worked in costume production for theatre. Her work participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Canada, the Netherlands, Europe, and Ulam Batar, Mongolia.
Upon returning to Canada, she continues to exhibit; curate exhibitions; and produce commissions in Northern Ontario as well as in the Netherlands. She is a recipient of Ontario Arts Council grants. And her work is included in public and private collections in Canada and Europe. Her studio is based in Bruce Mines ON.
My post graduate program focused on the study of nature: portriature and undraped studies of the human figure. Female fertility goddesses from ancient cultures have always fascinated me and my early sculptural focus was on the the female figure in all phases of life.
Being back in Canada, and surrounded by nature in Northern Ontario, there is evidence that I am experiencing a transformational process. In readjusting to my new surroundings I find myself moving in a new sculptural direction.
