Uk based artist Lisa Marsh began her illustration career in 2007.Her portrayal of vintage fashionistas are a beautiful celebration of quirkiness attitude and alternative style.
After a couple of years teaching her mission to re-discover a passion for drawing began with a sketchbook ,a packet of felt tips and a ticket to Mexico. However it was a fateful meeting with a colourful New York character that was to be the real inspiration and Lisa soon found herself on an extended stay in New York. The colourful character was an ex- model and vintage beauty who introduced Lisa to a previously unknown world of burlesque bars, 1950's style counter culture and sultry dreamers. Immersed in this world Lisa filled sketchbook after sketchbook capturing the spirit of each and every person she encountered.
Lisa has been exhibiting, selling and working to commission ever since. She can often be seen hanging out in cafes drinking large amounts of tea and looking for quirky ladies with soulful faces.
