Celebrating the Artists Who Have Inspired me as a Blogger......Lisa of Priti Studios"

I feel like I should apologize because it occurred to me that many of you already know the people I've been featuring all week- because they are all so exceptional, they are pretty well known in Blogland!  Since I'm trying to recognize some of the (many) folks who have inspired this blog, you'll just have to live with a few reintroductions ;)  Today's artist is no exception!  Lisa of Priti Studio who I KNOW many of you are familiar with, creates some of the most soul warming, powerful works I've ever seen- and she loves words as much as I do!  I'm a sucker for art with words as some of you may know.....

Lisa is working on a series to be used for tarot cards.  All of the pieces are chock full of symbolism, great color, and yes; words- I LOVE this series!
This is the piece Lisa did for last weeks challenge at IA- Decide.  It's also an entry for her sketchbook for The Sketchbook Project and a preliminary sketch for her next Tarot card painting- I think it's my new favorite!  I LOVE her expression, and did I mention that I like words?

I also really like pieces with numbers......and houses are pretty neat too!  One of my favorite things about Lisa is how down to earth she is, she has no qualms about being herself and letting it shine through everything she does.  That takes the kind of bravery that I hope to one day have.  Like all artists, she expresses occasional self doubt, but her "Lisa-ness" always shines through, in her art and on her blog.  If you haven't yet met Lisa, please hop over to her blog- Priti Studio;  she is an incredible lady, sure to inspire and leave you with a wonderful sense of well being.

Great post - about a great artist and by a great artist!

Lisa I think the reason that Steph has made you "sound like a really great person, like someone I would want to be friends with" is because - well, you're a really great person, and someone that I love being friends with!

Lisa is indeed a great inspiration-to me and others. She is always sparkling and her love of life shines through in all her work. I love her tarot series.

Another wonderful artist and you did her justice with your lovely post. Her art is really, really stunning, too. I wish I could draw like she does. I'm just now experiencing her Tarot series.

BTW, she's my feature artist when I unveil my IA challenge this week.
