Lisa Washington is a fresh new emerging breakout career artist. The digital artwork of her photography first showed up and sold at a woman’s empowerment event at the Atlantic Towers in Brooklyn, establishing herself as a creative arts professional. Then, one of her very clever vibrant photography selections appeared in the 2016 Bed Stuy Art Walk, where she sold again.
She has been taking pictures for nearly 15 years, mostly appearing in the former Black Circle News and Star Journal News annual print publications, but her recent shots can be seen at Star Journal News’ NYC Local Guide.
Currently she enjoys giving a voice to nature through her still-life photography of landscapes and flowers that reflect a sense of peace as a way of combating violence, with the use of her point-and-shoot camera, or her cell phone. Quite naturally, abstract painting with acrylic on recycled material was a smooth progression that she since has learned and now knows she inherited from her mother who created art in 1980’s.
Lisa is a former paid-member of the 2017-2018 Fulton Street Art Fair made up of professional artists throughout the city, but has quickly advanced making massive strides in such a short time using her own artistry to help heal others through their process. She will share in the act of making art, but her supreme spiritual gifts which others want to label “art therapy” is a “God” thing.
Ms. Lisa has worked as an Fine Art Teacher Consultant with people at all levels of abilities, helping them to express themselves through the world of creating art, with various forms of media and maintains documented developmental proof of their progress. She loves learning, sharing and lending her strong knowledge base, but her natural gifts are shared with only a chosen few worthy souls.
She is first to admit, during her art sessions, she is more focused on the importance of holding space for those participating in her art sessions, rather than her catering to those who present themselves as distractions in the grand scheme of things.
Ms. Lisa continues looking forward to participating and sharing her work through tremendous sales in major art venues, extends deep gratitude and appreciation to all the highly acclaimed honest art connoisseurs who share in her success.
“The Truth is Light, and the Truth Shall Make You Free.” Lisa simply has a pure and natural way of engaging people through the arts. (period)
