Lisa Kurec

Lisa Kurec is inspired by the environment and her Ukranian heritage to produce exquisitely detailed linocuts and etchings on paper.

Her studio is  on a small farm in Drouin West. As a classroom teacher, Lisa deftly relayed her techniques and inspirations to those who had gathered around her press in the centre of the studio. Photographs of a bunch of lemons and of irises on the wall reveal the inspiration for her next set of prints. Lisa’s bitumen stained hands show the technique of rubbing a copper plate clean of ink before it enters the press. The process in this space has a rhythmic quality combining technique with artistic prowess.

Although Lisa’s studio is chock full of bits and pieces of her artistic life, it is orderly and again reflects Lisa the artist.
