Lisa McKinney is the daughter of an internationally collected painter and a renowned microbiologist. The mix of the creative and the logical always felt like a pull of two very conflicted worlds.
As a child, Lisa’s drawings and paintings were chosen each year to be displayed at the elementary school art shows in the local opera house. But as time went on, she found herself focused on more analytical endeavors and abandoned art altogether.
After studying Social Work and working with troubled teens for several years, the artistic side had long been forgotten. But when she began experimenting with graphic design, photography, and digital art, the worlds collided into an emotional and visual experience of the right and left brain.
Lisa currently works as a graphic designer, and as an artist focuses on graphic paintings, photography and editing, and mixed media graphics.
