Lisa Qualls works in mixed media – primarily with paper, clay and fibers. She draws on her background of sculpture, photography, printmaking and textile design to create both two- and three-dimensional visions of the world around her. She is inspired by history, literature, nature and dreams, and the resulting artwork ranges from surreal to humorous to political. She enjoys transferring techniques from one medium to another, as sometimes textile techniques work very well for clay or paper and vice-versa. For Lisa, the most important thing is creating a visual work of art that expresses her idea and is meaningful to the viewer. Lisa received her BFA at the University of Texas at Austin and continued studies in textile design, clay and mosaics at Parsons and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and at CISIM in Ravenna, Italy. She recently received a Fellowship Grant from the Houston Arts Alliance.
