Lisa Forstinger

Lisa Forstinger

Lisa Forstinger is a self-taught artist, born and raised in the Niagara Region. She has been drawing and exploring her creativity since she was a child. Her focus as an adult has been illustrating with ink, balancing the many lines and details of her ink drawings with playful splashes of colour. Lisa has used her ability to draw and create things as a way to cope and heal along her mental health journey. These themes of mental health can be seen throughout her work, as she often processes difficult emotions by expressing them in some form of self-portrait. Lisa also has a passion for fibre arts, and is talented at knitting, sewing, and hand-embroidery. Her pen and ink illustrations were featured publicly for the first time in the Fall 2018 program for the Willow Arts Community. Since then, Lisa has continued to learn and grow as an artist through Willow’s professional arts training program. In the past few months, Lisa has adapted her artistic approach due to limitations in her battle with Lyme Disease. This unexpected process of evolution has proven significant to her growth as an artist. In pursuit of her passion, she has learned to replicate her style of hand illustrations in a digital, more accessible format and is now considering a career as a digital/graphic artist.
