Statement

Lisa Krannichfeld was born and raised in Little Rock, AR in an interesting mix of Southern American and Chinese cultures. Her experiences growing up in these two intermixing cultures and their traditions have greatly influenced her work, which primarily focuses on the woman as its subject. Growing up surrounded by women born of the mindset to serve - not indulge, be humble - not bold, and to suppress - not express, Lisa gives the women in her paintings a voice and an outlet. Breaking traditions further, Lisa often uses traditional Chinese ink and watercolor materials in a nontraditional uncontrolled, free-flowing way often mixed with unconventional materials.
