Hi. Let’s chat a little. I’m Lisa and I have a passion for paper! I decided eight years ago to put that passion to use as a collage artist. I spent my early years on the performing side of the art spectrum as a professional dancer. It wasn’t until 2008, at the age of 42, that I took a drawing class in community college and fell in love with the visual side of art. Design, color, and collage classes soon followed at the Glassell School of Art in Houston, Texas.
Much like a painter would use oil or acrylic paint as their media, I use paper to achieve the same result. I paint and textures papers of all kinds to create "mini" pieces of art with each individual sheet of paper. I then use my mountain of papers as my palette, tearing and placing the different papers one piece at a time to create collages that are full of color, texture, text, and images.
I am a member of the National Collage Society and represented by Abbey Road/Penny Lane Fine Art for art licensing. You can find my whimsical images on puzzles, greeting cards, journals and many more gift items throughout the United States.
