Virtual Exhibit: Book of Flowers: Collages by Lisa Snow Lady

Lisa Snow Lady has long featured botanical imagery in her artwork. Her paintings, collages, and mixed media prints have been inspired by city parks, nature reserves, and private gardens for many years.

The title of this show, Book of Flowers, is a reference to The Book of Hours, a richly illuminated medieval psalter or devotional book. Spending time in her own garden during this past summer (in the midst of the pandemic), absorbing the sights, fragrances, and sounds became a time of reflection, solace, and hope.

Working primarily from flora in her own garden, Lisa pieced together cut and torn papers to create a unified whole. This creative process also served as a meditative experience.

Lisa holds a BA in Art History, a BFA in Painting from the University of Washington, and a Certificate in Ornamental Horticulture from Edmonds College. She teaches botanical watercolor classes through the UW Botanic Gardens and is happy to donate 20% of the proceeds of sales from this show to support the Miller Library.
