Lisa Stead is an abstract artist located in the beautiful neighbourhood of Old South in London. As a student she studied fine art, graphic design and photography. This is seen in her use of shape, colour and tone. She paints in an expressionistic style; however, expressing herself through abstraction is her first love. It allows an unrestricted approach, relinquishing control to the tools so energy leads the way intuitively. Her works are described as explorations of bold colour, defined line and shape with emphasis on use of space. She works primarily with acrylics and loves the use of texture to achieve detail. Each painting is complete when harmony and balance are found in the chaos. Tour visitors are invited to Lisa’s new studio to participate in creating a community piece.
