Artist Portfolio: Lisa Lackey

Today we are featureing the online art portfolio of New York city textile artist Lisa Lackey. Her figures possess an element of anonimity as each face is made up up varying toned quadrants. With identity obscured there is somehow more familiarity to these scenes.


"A graduate of the University of Kansas in Architectural Engineering and the School of Visual Arts for her MFA, Lisa has been finding her artistic voice while raising her child and teaching Math and Art as a NYC Public School Teacher. Ready to share her work with the world, she offers this Website as her introduction." -
