artist profile - Lisa Congdon
San Francisco mixed media artist and illustrator, Lisa Congdon, works in several mediums, including paper collage, screen-printing, ink, textiles and paint. She is mostly self-taught, and uses her lack of training to her advantage. Instead of following refined technique, she works with her own sense of color, composition and design as her guide. Lisa is almost constantly photographing and annotating her life; each of her pieces, often part of a larger series, usually starts as an idea she documents in one of several small notebooks she carries with her everywhere.
Lisa shares a studio compound in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco with 7 other working artists. She has been featured in Bitch, Adorn, Country Living and ReadyMade Magazines and on numerous art, design and culture blogs. Lisa is also the co-owner and gallery curator for Rare Device in San Francisco.
