Since achieving a B.A. (Hons) degree in Graphic Design, Lisa Valks has worked as a successful artist and graphic designer for over 20 years.

Lisa now concentrates on her first love of painting and drawing portraits, animals, seascapes and landscapes.

Lisa achieves a striking likeness in her portraiture, striving to capture personality. This is achieved by her attention to detail and bold use of colour and contrast.

Living in East Sussex Lisa is inspired by the sea and the surrounding dramatic countryside. She creates atmospheric seascapes and landscapes using oils, acrylic and mixed media.

“Design and composition are of paramount importance to me. I try to bring a powerful graphic quality to my work which results in a visual and emotional intensity.”
