Lisa Mitchell

Artist, Teacher, Community worker

My most recent work has centered around exploring our relationship with lost places and objects. There is great beauty to be found within the realms of decay and dereliction and I am constantly intrigued by the stories that such places and memorabilia hold. My works are often emotive and autobiographical with past works drawing on intense personal histories which at times has proved controversial. Career path 2011 - present.
