About Lisa Marie Art and Illustration

Lisa Marie Art and Illustration

Creater of original small format art, ACEO, and handmade goodies for lovers of cats, animals and other cute things!

I've always loved drawing, painting, and making things, and I've always loved animals. When I was growing up, I'd regularly sit with my favourite animal books, drawing my favourite animals with my coloured pencils. I still have a lot of those drawings tucked away safe!

After school I went on to study natural history illustration at Sunderland University. Getting to paint animals and birds every day was a dream come true! Shortly after that my artwork caught the attention of a small newly established design studio local to my home in Jarrow. I became a soft furnishing and wall covering designer for them creating designs for the American market featuring animals, nature, flowers, and seascapes.

In 2010 I decided to set up on my own away from the confines of weekly briefs and deadlines. These days I paint small format art and have most recently branched out in to making a variety of handmade goodies. My main muse (and my favourite painting subject) is cats but you'll always find my other loves creeping in to my work. These include cacti, birds, kawaii and food!

My early work is very reminiscent of the illustrations found in wildlife observation books and from time to time I still paint or design in that way. Most of the time though, I use a more whimsical 'quirky' style!

Although the majority of my artwork is available online, I regularly paint small collections of 6-10 paintings (usually cats) for Whitby Galleries based in Whitby, here in the UK.
