Lisa Hooper. Artist in Nature

December 7, 2010

Lisa Hooper was born in Hampshire and has lived in north east Essex, mid Wales, Gloucestershire

and Dumfries and Galloway where she has now settled. Lisa has always painted, exploring a variety

of media and subjects. The turning point in her artistic development came in 1992 when she joined

an evening class in etching at what is now the University of Gloucestershire.

Over successive years her commitment to printmaking grew and in 1998 she bought her own press

and started working from her basement studio in Cheltenham. Lisa began to sell her work at first

locally and then further afield.

In 1999 a significant corporate sale was followed by a small solo exhibition and acceptance onto the

AA2A scheme in September. This scheme, designed to give practicing artists access to

art college facilities, enabled Lisa to spend 100 hours in the University studios developing a portfolio

of work on barns for a final exhibition early in 2000.

Lisa’s work has been marketed by galleries in Cheltenham, Stroud, Cirencester, Bath, St Ives

and Appledore. Her work is varied both in terms of technique and subject matter but her passion

for landscape and natural history is evident in much of her work. Recently Lisa has been

working on a number of artists book projects and experimenting with batik on paper,

both of which possess some synergy with printmaking.
