The Proof: Lisa Geddes
01 Looking out from my studio – the driveway is not super inspiring but the forest just beyond draws me out.
02 I love my studio but unfortunately it doubles as a second guest room. Right now it’s taken over by summer visitors and downhill mountain bikers staying with us during crankworx… paints are all put away but they sure do call me… sigh… I’ll need to wait a while longer until i can get back at it!
03 This is what my studio usually looks like when I’m busy creating.
04 Me on a trail. I like this shot! Maybe i’ll use it as a photo transfer in one of my paintings… hmm… gives me a cool idea!
05 This is a photo I took as an inspiration for my new series ‘rooted’. I like to play with opposites when working on a theme (rooted/uprooted).
06 A little collage I did.
07 One of the cool things I discover when I pay attention on my walks and runs through the woods. Who put that there? It’s awesome!
08 A favourite summer supper! I love to make food art too. Or rather I cook intuitively inspired by the aromas, flavours, colours and textures that appeal to me in the moment of creation! It feels like more of a celebration that way – and of course a nice glass of wine is the perfect accompaniment.
What neighbourhood do you live in?
I live in Alpine Meadows in a house at the end of a road next to a creek and the forest. It’s an awesome spot!
What do you do and where?
I’m a visual artist and have a studio in my house. I’m also a wife and mom of three kids (19, 17 and 10) so that means I’m busy with mom stuff a lot – too much sometimes because it can keep me from my art more than I like.
What are you working on?
Right now I have my art on hold because I’m playing host (cook/housekeeper/shopper…) for my two teen racing sons and other big hungry mountain bikers staying with us for Crankworx! Fun as well as work but I’ll have to wait until summer ends to start back at my new series of paintings titled “Rooted”.
Where can we find your work?
My work is at Art Junction Gallery here in Whistler in Function Junction as well as at my friend’s cool store on Main Street in Vancouver called Bird On A Wire Creations.
