Lisa Brown – I work in a variety of media: My “Gardens of Hope” are made with watercolors to which I add painted textured papers to make flowers come alive. In the series “Children at Play” I capture the innocence and childhood sense of a joy and a trouble-free time in collage. For my “Texture Scapes” I use acrylics with a variety of papers to portray the variety of textures in landscapes. Through exploration and experimentation I found a lively frolicsome expression of nature in which I combine a variety of media and color. I add beads, leaves, gauze, hand-made papers and paint assembling the work piece layer by layer into a dazzling work of art. I often have a theme or subject in mind yet as each piece is added to the composition is being refined and enhanced.

In making the art pieces as I do, the art process takes over and I lose track of time while my mind is concentrating on the theme. I use both hands and thus both sides of my brain—(the left logical side and the right intuitive) bringing my creative imagination together with my expertise in art media.

I am a teacher and facilitator as well as a fine artist and created “art-as-therapy” programs which are geared to those suffering adversity or pain and working through rough life situations. By directing my clients through the art process and incorporating the Creative Journal Expressive Arts method they have the opportunity to delve into the unconscious to find the most honest expression of what they want to communicate.
