|Lisa K. Walraven has been creating for over 15 years. Her BFA comes from the Ohio University in 1988. She has been involved in bird research on and off for 10 years. She & her husband settled in a little artist's town in Southeast Arizona, surrounded by beautiful sky islands, and unusual bird, mammal, and reptile species. Lisa enjoys painting "portraits" of critters, often times depciting only the head.
Lisa uses oils, acrylics, and is currently experimenting with mixed media to create her favorite subject matter: birds. All of her work is inspired by nature. She has had a fondness for bright colors and bold patterns and all animals since childhood.
She is constantly studying art and experimenting all the while learning more.
