Lisa Lackey is an artist who focuses on recreating her version of the world through fabric, collaged onto canvas and overlaid with detailed stitching. She refers to her blend of fine art and craft as textile paintings.
She was nurtured and inspired in the love and appreciation for all things visual by her graphic artist father and textile artist mother, while her love affair with sewing and women's domestic craft traditions were handed down to her by her great-grandmother. This has led Lisa to create work with bold graphic fabric shapes intimately stitched with meticulous details.
A graduate of the University of Kanses and the School of Visual Arts, Lisa holds Bachelor degrees in both Architectural Engineering, and Environmental Design, as well as a Masters of Fine Arts. She teaches Art in a New York City public school, of which she is a founding memeber. She currently has her residence and studio in Maplewood, New Jersey.
