Lisa Chow brings sparkle and joy to the Houston art world. "Inspired by all things feminine, [her] watercolors are whimsical and just a bit tongue-in-cheek." Lisa is a "self-taught artist" whose prints, cards, paintings, scarves, and more are sold all over the country. She makes feminism look good (and sparkly) and we're so happy that she calls Houston home!
What's your favorite thing about being an artist in Houston?
I love being an artist in Houston because Houston's art community is pretty small and close knit. For better or worse, everyone knows everyone and it's like being forced to be a part of this big family with big personalities and hate them or love them, you're in it together.
What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend or a Sunday afternoon?
My favorite way to start a weekend is tossing the family into our car, grabbing a coffee at our favorite neighborhood stop, hitting up the farmer's market and then story time at a beloved bookstore. All beforenoon. I am an early bird. My husband hates me.
What's your favorite piece of public art in Houston?
The "We Love Houston" sign by David Adickes. It's big, bright, colorful and shouts Houston love.
