Matte Option

Lisa Draper

A new offer I’m excited to bring to the table is a matte option! Any smooth epoxy work can be finished in matte via a process of surface sanding and polishing to a satin-like texture.

I personally love this effect, and have already seen the benefits of the option for certain homes and offices.

This option is best for:

Art and Literacy

New series alert!

As the name suggests, this series celebrates the gift of the written word and the power it has to shape our perspectives of the world.

Each piece is made while listening to the work that is being celebrated. Created in layers of epoxy (of course) using pages from the actual book to create artwork that celebrates the soul of the work.

Can I Keep it For a Week First?

Lisa Draper

This week I sold one of my favorite pieces, “Waterfall”, a 24” x 48” mixed media to an incredible couple in Colorado. During the process of the sale I ran into a couple common questions and want to share them and some appropriate responses here.

“We’ve never bought a piece like this!  I think it’ll work really well in our space, we’re just not sure.  Is there any way we can see it actually in our home before we buy it?”

Building a Powerful Artist Statement

Lisa Draper

Have you ever visited a gallery and read that beautiful little blip about how an artist breathes, moves, and feels in relation with their work?  Did it feel so effortless, like seaweed moving in water? Orrrr….was it dreadfully long, boring, and full of typos? Like...painfully so??? Gritting your teeth and wondering why the gallery owner didn’t notice?

Well folks, you just learned the basic differences between a good artist statement and a poor one.
