About the artist:
Lisa Smith lives in Somerset and has been working in the Art and Design industry for over 20 years.
Following a successful career as an award winning carpet designer, she now divides her time between surface pattern design and her passion for painting. Over the last 15 years she has successfully exhibited her paintings in galleries throughout the Southwest.
Using acrylic/mixed media on canvas or board, Lisa’s tall thin compositions incorporating people, buildings and boats are likened by her to ‘looking through a window and capturing a slice of busy, everyday scenes in various habitats that she has visited around the world’, from the poverty stricken dust tracks of India to the exquisite cities of Italy; the powerful views of Manhattan to the natural beauty of her rural and coastal surroundings.
