Lisa Swanepoel trained as a Fine Artist and Textile Designer. Lisa’s work always shows her passion for vibrant colour and detailed decorative pattern. Her career began as a print designer and window installation conceptualiser, she was also the creator of high-end kids clothing.
Through these experiences, she was directed into large-scale installation artworks using a variety of material. Some of the materials she experimented with resulted in LED-backlit multicoloured Perspex, 3-D relief works created from Pantone cards and vinyl, 3-D enamel painted mirror artworks, as well as, woven coloured card creating abstract and irregular frame installations, enamel painted tiles for splashbacks, large-scale typographic signs, which made use of multiple layers of foam board, created out of colourful vinyl and thousands of map pins…to name a few.
Wallpaper and textile design has always been her first love and remembers as a young child being fascinated and inspired to create her own versions in her spare time.
