Lisa Kerpoe creates paintings on cloth using water-based and mixed media techniques. She studied a range of surface design techniques and has worked many hours experimenting with new techniques and perfecting her craft. Kerpoe is the author of Visual Texture on Fabric: Create Stunning Art Cloth with Water-Based Resists, (C&T, 2012) and Vibrant Color (with Jane Dunnewold).
My work is inspired by the beauty of nature and by my journey toward mindful living. My work is also informed by the importance of meditation and reflection in my life. I often use mandala-like imagery as a way to bring the viewer into the piece and then use many layers of texture and design to complement the central image. I am drawn to working with textiles for their tactile quality and am entranced by the beauty of cloth gently moving with the air currents.
