About

Lisa Kilty

I am a visual artist living and working in Blackshaw Head , West Yorkshire, England ,where my studio overlooks the misty Pennine Hills. I have travelled widely in Spain, Portugal and South America, where the intense luminosity of light and colour has profoundly influenced my artwork. My work involves painting and aspects of print-making. It is an evolving process and I am currently working on unstretched canvas with the legacy, symbolism and power of the women’s protest movements.

I have always painted and my paintings tend to emerge from the surface of the canvas in an intuitive process. I work mainly in acrylics on canvas, for the jewel-like colour, flexibility, durability and the quick drying time between layers of paint – of which there are many. My work over time has intersected with dreams, visions, archetypes, icons, meditation, mythology, nature, time, perception which is shown on the galleries page.

Painting is a transformative process.

Painting is a portal into the imagination and expression of the artist.

Art is Freedom.
