About

Hello, I'm Lindsey Beacham, owner of Ploom Studios. I've lived most of my life in the Inland Northwest, with a brief detour to Portland, OR. While I enjoyed my time in Portland, it made me appreciate all this area has to offer even more.

I've designed for larger corporations most of my career. However, I have a special place in my heart for small business owners, coming from a family of them.

My grandmother was always a big influence in my life. Living through the depression taught her a resourceful ingenuity I've come to admire. She took skills she learned in a glove factory and started her own upholstery business at a time when it was unusual for women to have paid jobs.

My first creative encounters were at her table, sewing scraps of fabric together or dreaming up a new project. She taught me not to be detered by limited resources.

Fun

When I'm not in front of a computer I enjoy exploring the outdoors by fishing, hiking, backpacking, and rock climbing. I also like to get my hands dirty gardening and throwing pottery. I'm an avid reader, always interested in learning new things. This has led me to try many hobbies but they almost always revolve around outdoor adventures or crafting.

What are people most surprised to learn about me?

I'm just as comfortable handling a fish or power tools as I am art directing on a fashion photo shoot.

Community

Growing up in a small community taught me the joy of personal connections. Now that my family has settled in Coeur d'Alene I've started to explore opportunities to actively participate in the local community. I'm particularly fond of the Inland NW Food Network, Gizmo, and Emerge, as well as the Spokane Mountaineers.

Why did I like these organizations?

I believe food, art, nature, and education are the greatest tools for creating connection - bringing together people from many different cultures and backgrounds.
