Lisa Daniels / Artist
Abstract / architectural artist, Lisa Daniels says,"Art has always been a part of my life." From a young age, her father discovered the drawings she had made, and sent them to JP Stevens Fabric Company, where they were used on several products.
From that moment on through her adult life, most of her jobs included some form of art. Even now, she currently works in the Architectural/Structural field. It is there that Lisa is able to use the freedom of expression in contemporary and abstract art, by combining her love of structures, with her love of painting.
