In preparation, Lisa was kind enough to take a few moments to answer five short questions for us about her work and life as an artist.

Q: Where do you draw inspiration from?
LP: Process, materials, research, metaphors, observation of light, shadows, architecture, and the natural world.

Q: What are you most proud of in regards to your art?
LP: That my work can evoke mystery, emotion, and change.

Q: What are your biggest challenges to creating art and how do you deal with them?
LP: Right now my biggest challenge is time in the studio. I always have numerous works in progress so when I get in the studio I can just get working.

Q: What advice has influenced you?
LP: “You are not making bombs just get in there and make.” – Jake Grossberg, a Professor from Bard College.

Q: Is there something you are currently working on, or excited about starting that you can tell us about? 
LP: I have a new series beginning in the studio that seems to be both personal and political.
