Lisa Traxler ARWS NAPA

Lisa Traxler ARWS NAPA For Traxler, “a picture is the experienced, felt and intuited world - a connection with her own immediate surroundings and way of life.” Experiences of travelling extensively in her previous job in London as a fashion editor and costume designer have been a huge influence in her artwork and have made her self aware of her sense of ‘place’. Exhibitions: Her award winning art has been exhibited widely in the UK including the RWS Bankside Gallery, Royal College of Art, Cork Street, Mall Galleries, London, the Crypt Gallery, St. Ives and with the Bath Society of Artists. She was recipient of the Pro Arte Award (2014), the Colart Award (2012) & the Golden Award (2010) for her paintings at the NAPA National Exhibitions, The Crypt Gallery, St. Ives. Her vitreous enamel and steel mural painted on the outside of the house she built with partner, designer Lincoln Miles, gained huge attention when aired on national television (Grand Designs, Channel 4, 2010/12) and was commended at the Architects Journal Awards, London (2011). She is a member of NAPA (National Acrylic Painters Association) & has exhibited throughout the UK with them. She regularly exhibits at the Affordable Art Fairs in Hong Kong & London. Lisa has just been elected an associate member of the Royal Watercolour Society (2015). A major solo exhibition of her paintings & sculptures, ‘Decade’ is currently touring from the West Gallery, Quay Arts, IW (2014) to the Apthorp Gallery, Artsdepot, London (2015) & on to St. Ives (2016). Her work can be found in private & public collections throughout the UK, Hong Kong, New York, Australia & Italy.
