My work is responsive to my surroundings and what is happening around me in and out of the studio, both through close study and filtered through memory and imagination. I intend for the works to trigger the imagination and am fascinated by the endless associativity that painted and drawn marks, objects and gestures can evoke.

Lisa Carter was born in 1972 in Cardiff and now lives and works in North Wales.  Her work although rooted in painting and drawing sometimes combines these processes with sculpture and installation. Three -dimensional works use little or no fixings, mostly utilising gaps, spaces and balance to hold them.  Lisa studied Theatre Design at Central Saint Martin’s, London.  She was selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2015 and the National Eisteddfod in 2012 and 2015. In 2012 and 2011 she was given Arts Council of Wales awards for research and development.
