Creativity takes courage.
— Henri Matisse

My name is Lindsey Johnson. I'm a confectionary artist, self taught baker, photographer, and designer. I create one of a kind artisan cakes, cupcakes, and sugar cookies. Each is a labor of love and made from the heart. I’m inspired daily, from the illustrations in my children’s books to the wildlife in my front yard.

It isn’t easy to put the labor of your heart and hand out for the world to critique, but I’ve come to learn if I’m creating I’m happy. That happiness has granted me the courage to share.

From drawing to photography, I’ve been a student of the arts my entire life. In high school I was voted “Most Artistic”, the only award I’ve ever won so, yes, I still brag about it. This led me to design school, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree, and then built a career as an interior designer.

My profound love for baking, giving credit to my mom who always baked from scratch, along with my passion for art and design brought me to the world of artisan cakes and confections, and photographing and sharing them along the way. I never would have guessed my favored artistic medium would be frosting, yet, here I am. I spend the majority of my days thinking about cake design, creating the perfect styling of dessert bars, and making edible art to bring people joy.

I live life in the Wild West, on a 25 acre ranch, in Freedom, WY, just south of Jackson Hole. I have an amazing husband, who often creates with me, and three adorable boys. With occasional grizzly bear visits and elk migrations through our backyard, our life here is far from ordinary. But it’s a life of adventure, and my creative heart wouldn't have it any other way. 

Much of the photography is my own. Other photography by the talented artists below:
