Lis lives with her dog Boris and two cats in the downland village of Jevington in East Sussex.
Always fascinated by the effect man has on the landscape – the roads, footpaths, hedgerows, marks and textures that evolve with years of farming, and the relationship between the old buildings and the countryside, she worked first as a printmaker. The way colour builds in layers helped her develope a way of painting that incorporates printmaking techniques such as stencilling and applying paint with rollers, and the use of collage and mixed media. Lis works in acrylic and mixed media (collage, water-soluble crayons, inks, etc.) on paper and the finished work is mounted and glazed.
