Lisa Morales Mixed Media
Better late than never. This statement is true for any “late bloomer” which is exactly what Lisa Morales considers herself to be. Lisa has a passion for paper and decided eight years ago to put that passion to use as a collage artist. Lisa spent her early years on the performing side of the art spectrum as a professional dancer. It wasn’t until 2008, at the age of 42, that Lisa took a drawing class in community college and fell in love with the visual side of art. Design, color, and collage classes soon followed at the Glassell School of Art in Houston, Texas.
Much like a painter would use oil or acrylic paint as their media, I use paper to achieve the same result. I paint and texture papers of all kinds to create "mini" pieces of art with each individual sheet of paper. I then use my artful papers as my palette, tearing and placing the different papers one piece at a time to create collages that are full of color, texture, text, and images.
Lisa is a member of the National Collage Society and is represented by Abbey Road/Penny Lane Fine Art for art licensing. You can find her whimsical images on puzzles, greeting cards, journals and many more gift items throughout the United States.
