Lisa Ballard is a contemporary artist from Belfast, where she lives and works as a member of Cathedral Studios. Lisa’s work takes inspiration from the landscape, simplifying an image and exploring negative space, in order to capture a moment in time.

She utilises different techniques such as washes, flat spray paint and scratches, building the painting in layers, and responding instinctively to how the colours influence one another in the painting. Lisa has won numerous awards for her work.

‘Grey Sky and Pink Blossom’ is currently included in the collection of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
