Canadian born artist Lisa Starr graduated from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Distinction in Painting and Drawing. Previous studies include an art foundation at Langara College in Vancouver, Canada. Currently living and working in Cambridge, England Lisa draws inspiration from the hecticness and mundanity that can be every day life. Her figurative oil paintings strive to bring to life a moment in time in which the background has just as much importance as the larger main figures.
Her paintings contain numerous layers of oil paint, as each layer brings forth more wonderful colour and texture they may also reveal a hidden story.
