About Lisa D'Amico, MFA, PhD
“Every new painting is a deep breath. A new beginning to tell a story using color and creativity."
Translating and provoking human emotions are the primary focuses of Lisa D'Amico's artwork. She strives to reproduce the varied facets of feelings through her deep fascination with color, shape and composition and the struggles that occur between them. "My choice of subject comes from a place of intuition and is fueled by an impetuous desire to partake in the stories that unfold around me."
Her creative process usually begins with a series of sketches, which serves as her inspirational catalyst to canvas, paper or printing block. Her techniques for the actual artwork often involves building up areas of color through the application of many layers of paint, latex, compounds and ink to achieve vibrant color effects and multitudes of texture.
