Lisa suffers from molluscophobia. Er, explain? ‘If I ever see a slug or a snail, I run away and scream like a baby!’ she says. ‘Even writing those two words gives me goosebumps…’
Tell us a bit about yourself…
I enjoy taking pictures, sewing, painting and making collages! Lately, I’ve also been making a lot of collages and videos. I love animals, books and rainbows…
What are your inspirations?
I’m obsessed with the late 1960s and ’70s. The psychedelic era is my favorite, and I try to recreate what I find and love the most about it. I’m also inspired by music, colors and dreams I have at night!
It is hard to pick something, as I constantly have second thoughts about my work but I’d choose a photograph I took a few years ago. It’s a multi-exposure picture and it has all these branches crossing each others. I think it kind of represents well who I am.
Without a doubt, Stephen Shore. He is just incredible, has his own, unique style. I love him! William Eggleston is also a big inspiration.
