Lisa Hardy studied at Winchester School of Art achieving a first class honours degree in Fine Art Textiles. After moving to London Lisa began a career in fashion where she worked as a PR Director for top luxury brands such as Alberta Ferretti, Sergio Rossi, Christian Louboutin and Bella Freud. After 15 years in London Lisa and her husband moved to Hastings to tap back into their creativity and where the countryside and gardens in East Sussex inspired much of Lisa’s work.
In 2018 Lisa gave up her career in fashion and with her husband moved to a converted barn in a small farming community in West Wales. The diverse landscape and beauty in the flora that surrounds them continue to inspire Lisa's work. Mainly working in watercolour Lisa abstracts the essence of what she feels and sees through her unique emotive style of painting and drawing.
