Lisa has been a vagabond her entire life never planting roots long enough to call any one place home. The only constant she has had in her life is art. Due to that lifestyle, a large part of Lisa’s work revolves around solitary moments in nature she captures through fine art photography, or whimsical worlds that she creates in her digital artistry.
Lisa has always been a storyteller, a story reader, and a story finder. She stares at people with fuchsia colored hair and tattoo laden bodies, at girls wearing skirts to their toes and men buttoned up to their necks and wonders what is their story?
"Art is not what you see, but what you make others see." ~Edgar Degas
Lisa’s digital artistry is an extension of her preoccupation with stories, and words, and their relationship to art. She believes in art, or design, there is always a story to tell. So, Lisa takes reality and molds it into a different tale, one that shows the world what she wants it to see.
"Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others." ~Johnathon Swift
Color is Lisa’s choice of drug. Whether in black and white or chroma, in photography she likes to take her images and push their tonal range just beyond the norm of reality. Color is how she paints reality into the invisible magical fantasy that she lives; color is how she shows others her world.
Lisa’s work is a celebration of the magic that we all lived as a child. It’s a world full of color and wonder intertwined with fear and mystery. Her work is the imagination at full capacity dreaming up stories of solitary moments that she wants to live in. She creates these worlds through fine art photography, design and digital artistry to show people that the imagination is the most powerful art tool if they are brave enough to invoke it.
