The art of Lisa Falk

Lisa Falk began her artistic career working as a cartoonist, having obtained a degree in science and a diploma in commercial art and graphic design. Following her move from King Island to the Tasmanian mainland in 1991, she began creating drawings of the state's natural areas and wilderness, developing a unique style that has become the hallmark of her work.

Lisa works with studio quality coloured pencils layered on 100% cotton, acid-free paper. It is an unforgiving process allowing little margin for error, since erasure becomes virtually impossible as the colours are built up to the resulting rich depths. Each drawing takes several months to complete.

Her work has a strong philosophical component, and the creative process is a meditative one that involves both self-inquiry and self-discovery. The result is a body of work of exceptional virtuosity, clarity and power.
