The Gallery: Lisa Congdon

You may remember the house tour we did of Lisa's Colorful Mission Abode. It was easy to guess from just seeing her bold and graphic apartment that she's an artist.

Lisa's work, like her home, is bold and graphic. She works in several mediums, including paper collage, wood, screen-printing, ink on paper, textiles and paint.

She's self-taught. As her bio says on her website, She uses her lack of training to her advantage; instead of relying on refined technique, she uses her own raw sense of what looks aesthetically pleasing as her guide.

Lisa's another San Francisco artist with a fan club. She's well-known in the craft world, too, and has been interviewed on Crafty Synergy, Kraf-o-La, and decor8.

She's currently showing at the Big Little Show in Calgary, Canada.

You can see Lisa's work in a solo show in February at The Reform School in Los Angeles, in April at a solo show at Rare Device in Brooklyn, and in May at a joint show with her sister Stephanie at Doe in San Francisco.

It's also sold on her website.
