Lisa James

Training initially in textiles, Lisa has worked extensively in the fashion and design industry. She has seen it evolve from a time of the artisan working by hand through to the arrival of digital technology.

 

She has had a successful career in the textile industry including working in New York as an art director for a leading fashion and textile studio and eventually moving back to London and setting up her own agency.

 

Now, Lisa has taken on a new direction and works in mixed media producing limited edition prints and designs. While recent work has focused on digital art, Lisa is now very accomplished with digital tools yet always seeks to remain loyal to her artisanal skills in embroidery and painting. Her influences are diverse, absorbing historical references, nature and by visiting museums and exhibitions which she marries with modern techniques.

 

Lisa works from her studio in The Chocolate Factory in North London. She regularly exhibits her work and is represented by Gas Art whilst still freelancing in textiles.
