Lisa Solomon is a mixed media studio artist, an author, a college professor, and Creativebug instructor that moonlights as an illustrator and graphic designer. She received her BA in Art Practice from UC Berkeley and her MFA from Mills College. Her layered mixed-media works and grand-sized installations often utilize unconventional mediums, humor, and color to explore gender, identity, and personal histories, as well as the nature of art and craft itself. She has exhibited nationally and internationally in a multitude of venues. As a Hapa (her mother is Japanese, her father Caucasian), she sees hybridity—in materials, in concept—as integral to her practice.
When not focused on her own work, Solomon likes to think she is pushing the next generation of artists to refine their skills, think beyond accepted techniques, and reflect on their own lives, including the potential political ramifications of just being an artist/maker in our society. She is profoundly interested in bridging the gaps between being creative, living creatively, and making a living as a creative.
