Lisa Lord has an effervescent spirit that is reflective in her bright, dancing, boisterous mosaics. Her art centers around her thankfulness for community, the deeper messages of sacred geometry, and all things flowered.
Most recently, she has completed a public art project called, “Infinite Potentials”, overlooking the Clark Fork River at the University of Montana in Missoula; a Percentage for the Arts awarded grant by the Montana Arts Council. This exterior 25’ mural, installed over a four month period, honors the water with its rhythmic movements, graceful curves, and bold and powerful arrangement.
After completion of this project, Lisa was additionally commissioned to install a triptych installation with community involvement in interior alcoves of the same college building. “Sun, Moon, Storm”, depict the varied landscapes of Montana; the sunny warmth of the high desert, the lush town of Missoula, and the lively Glacier National Park mountains are benevolently stitched together by the Clarks Fork River.
Lisa apprenticed in tile manufacturing for eight years with Katia McGuirk in Doylestown, Pennsylvania and studied with Issah Zagar in Center City, Pennsylvania. She was invited to Cuenca, Ecuador in 2013 to teach the community the basics of mosaics, assisting them in creating the largest community mural in the history of the city.
Lisa also takes private commissions, consider having a custom mural in your home or business. You can reach her at:
