A little about Lisa...

Since childhood I’ve enjoyed looking at the outside world, daydreaming and drawing, and I studied art in high school.  On my first overseas trip I bought an SLR camera which opened up a new world of creativity to me. 

 

Over the years of raising my family I enjoyed many beach and bush camping holidays, taking my sketch book and camera along to record the textures, shapes and colours of nature.  

 

Through my drawing and photography I am able to closely examine my subject, which is often an object or objects either from nature or from my domestic surroundings.  

 

Although I live in a city my cravings for the natural world are satisfied by regular weekend trips to the bush and the beach.  

While raising my family I studied Studio Ceramics, ran my own small production pottery and taught children’s clay classes. Later I joined a painting studio and exhibited in the annual shows. 

 

In recent years I studied for a Diploma of Visual Art and graduated with a majors in printmaking and drawing.  My works have won a few local awards.  I am a member of Impress Printmakers Group in Brisbane, Australia and participate in their annual group shows, as well as some other regional exhibitions. 

 

My creative working life has included work as a potter, a picture framer, a studio assistant and currently, a high school Art Dept aide, where I share my skills, enjoying the opportunities to assist and interact with the students and art teaching staff. 

I can be messaged on my Facebook page or emailed at lisamarg1@yahoo.com
