About

Lissie - The Artist

I'm Lissie. I'm an artist, illustrator and designer. 

I started painting from an early age, and have 100's of pieces in my personal collection. I have a degree in Architecture and a wide range of experience in Fine Art, Creative Visual Arts and Design. I work in Architecture, Interior Design and as a professional artist, illustrator and designer. 


The most exciting projects I get up to are Live Painting for weddings and events, and public sculpture paintings! I create paintings live at events, such as weddings, art festivals and celebrations - guests can watch the image come to life as the event goes on.

My sponsors gave excellent feedback stating that: ‘You went above and beyond on behalf of CEDO, the duck looks really fantastic
