Lisa Trim
Historical Costumes, 2020

Pencil and ink on paper, 30 x 30 cm each

These recent paintings form part of the visual research for Lisa Trim’s on-going embroidery practice. Inspired by traditional needlework samplers, often featuring houses surrounded by borders of patterns, Lisa has been working on the theme of the home. Creating images of different houses and the people and objects that might be inside them. In the New Year, these paintings will form the basis for an ambitious new embroidery project.

Lisa celebrates a decade with Intoart in 2020. Since the beginning her work has been full of vibrant colour and lively characters. Be they animals, historical figures or inanimate objects Lisa always finds a way to instil a strong personality in whatever she draws.
