Lisa Risbec



Lisa Risbec is an artist who, after a BA in photography and film making, creating animations and running a photography business, returned to making work by hand. She is currently experimenting with collage, paint and crafted objects and works on art projects as well as selling her work online.

Her artwork flows between textiles, crafted object, photography, collage, printmaking and animation. Making something out of nothing and creating surreal worlds, dreamlike images and handmade oddities and objects with a variety of found materials, she is inspired by dereliction and the textures of cities, collections, nature thriving in unusual spaces, silver birches in the winter, hidden things, the colour palettes of new places and handmade books. 

Keen to share skills with others and having worked on many projects in the past, inspiring others to create and promoting good mental health and wellbeing is an issue that is important to her.
