Having always been inspired by nature and its expressions in the landscape, Lisa Dawn White paints and collages handmade papers and fabrics with botanical specimens that she collects, presses, preserves and enhances using a uniquely developed ten step process. Works are created in multiple, successive layers and finished by hand embellishing to imbue a sense of movement and spirit. Thus, with the addition of color and texture provided by vibrant pigments and papers, Lisa's collages offer a contemporary interpretation on pressed flower art and craft. Always searching for pattern and repetition in nature, Lisa is selective about the botanical elements that she uses in her works; careful attention to detail and composition give her work an element of distinction. A whimsical interpretation of nature is a golden thread running through each design. Lisa hopes that her works inspire people to observe nature more closely, and reflect upon their relationship with it.
