Artist Lisa Lapointe has a fine arts degree from CoFA, UNSW. However, she spent 13 years working in fashion and interiors (for Orson & Blake, Ksubi, Romance was Born & Mark Tuckey), before finally making the decision to pursue art full-time.
This year, Lisa’s creative practice comes full circle, with the launch of her very own capsule collection of cushions and homewares, featuring her distinctive hand drawn forms.
Avalon-based artist Lisa Lapointe works exclusively in vibrant coloured pencil. Her meticulously rendered works on paper are large in scale, utilising a bold palette, clean lines and strong geometric shapes. ‘The technique, hours of colouring in, is a sort of meditation practice in itself’ Lisa explains. ‘It requires great patience and diligence. Any mistakes become part of the work as there is no rubbing out or going over.’
Over the past year Lisa has been developing a new creative project. Her small range of cushions, oversized floor cushions, quilts and wallpaper, features her distinctive, softly textured artwork. They’re all 100% printed and stitched locally in Sydney, in small runs (or made to order).
In addition to developing her fledgling homewares line, Lisa has also managed to squeeze in an EXHIBITION this year! Her show, entitled ‘Timelessness’ opens at Koskela in Sydney on October 8th.
