Lisa Congdon

Lisa Congdon is a talented fine artist and illustrator based in San Francisco. 
I have posted a few of her artworks before, and have been wanting to feature 
some more. These chilly January days seem like a great time to do so,
since her pictures warm me up like a good cup of hot cocoa.

While her work explores a variety of media and styles, 
it always expresses a great love of nature. 

You can find Lisa Congdon's art on her websiteflickretsy shop and blog,
while her love of collecting found a creative outlet in the immensely popular blog
 A Collection a Day, which is now also a book published by Uppercase.

If you want to learn more about Lisa you should listen to this podcast interview
by Meighan O'Toole, curator of the great art blog my love for you
which also featured a lovely series of photos of her studio last year.

The recent show Boreas was inspired by Congdon's love of barren landscapes and 
by her viewing of Heimaa beautiful documentary about the Icelandic band Sigur Rós.
I really enjoy this exploration of wildlife, arctic whiteness and colorful folkloric motifs!


  1. Dear Sister,

    Lisa's work is so much fun, and Uppercase is a delight. I just subscribed; a new year's present to myself. Perhaps I can even make it onto their pages this coming year...

    Happy New Year, Laura. What shall we post up next?
