Lisa Underwood, Teaching Artist
I love being a Teaching Artist!
Since my childhood, I have always created art. I guess my career as a producing artist started when I was a little girl. I gave my creations to friends and family for any occasion! And I still do.
At some point, I became fascinated with textiles and their production. I worked in the Textile & Interior Design fields for about ten years. So my artwork is often influenced by fabrics. I love to draw and paint but also find excitement in exploring different art forms, quilling for one.
Being a teaching artist, I’m always exploring with my students. I love the creative exchange. Art making is sometimes the best avenue to genuine communication. Helping people get comfortable with their creativity is one of the most rewarding aspects of being a teaching artist.
Commission Original Art
I accept commissions for individual and commercial projects; welcoming clients’ input to ensure collaborative, custom pieces. I strive to get people involved in the process of art making to promote Social Creativity and the benefits of self-expression through visual art.
