Visual artist and author Lisa has been embroidering since she was a child and uses her observations on 21st century life to fuel her work:
“I am a self-taught textile artist. I use embroidery as a contextual canvas to illustrate my life through thread and to provide a bit of social commentary into the preoccupations, obsessions and eccentricities of modern life. By documenting my thoughts through a platform that until recently has been excluded from the canon, I seek to widen notion of what art can be, and in doing so, capture a record of the preoccupations, obsessions, and eccentricities of modern life and behavior.”
Lisa’s solo show at the ACME Gallery in Beverly Hills was hailed as a pioneering and evocative tour de force. She has since showed her work in other exhibitions including "Art of the Grid" at MB Abram Galleries. Her works are held in many private collections including Soho House, Hollywood.
