Pettersson, Lisa Curriculum Vitae

Lisa Pettersson grew up in Sweden but since 1995 has spent most of her time living, studying and working in the UK. She is currently living in Edinburgh where she works as an artist and graphic designer. She exhibits regularly around the country and beyond and has paintings in private collections in the UK, Sweden, Holland, France, USA, Brazil, Vietnam, Australia and Hong Kong.

Intimately familiar situations and domestic life and spaces has been a long running theme of Pettersson�s painting, which bridges fine art and graphic design. Her most recent works are inspired by 50s children�s book illustrations and childhood nostalgia, and are jerked into modernity with compelling results.
