Lisa Shepherd

Lisa is a textile designer and visual artist currently creating work in a variety of techniques which include photographic cyanotypes, screen prints and eco prints. Her work is inspired by the botanical world and particularly Australian native flora which she uses to create delicate, joyful artwork.

Born in the historic city of Hereford in England, Lisa emigrated to Australia with her family in 2005. She now calls Sydney ‘home’ and it is here she has flourished as an artist and furthered her artistic practice.

Lisa has a life long love of the arts and began her career after studying Interior & Three Dimensional Design in Wales. She went on to specialize in textile design and printing and her passion for fabrics and a keen eye for colour grew. She now uses her many years studying a variety of techniques to produce both home and lifestyle products.

Lisa has always had a strong connection with nature and draws her inspiration from Australian flora. Her creative process involves foraging for plant  material, pressing and preserving and then using these dried flowers to produce a photographic image. A photogram is made without a camera by placing objects on to the surface of a light sensitive material and then exposing it to light. The result is a negative shadow image in a beautiful blue tone.  The  prints are then further embellished with embroidery, metallic leaf or simply watercolour paint.

“As a visual artist I work hard to create pieces that speak about the beauty existing to all of us in our natural environment.  I like to capture this beauty in  a simple, delicate way taking nothing away from the plant itself and allowing it to shine through majestically”.
