Lisa K. Salerno is a mixed media artist and art blogger associated with lyrical abstraction, feminism and equality, spiritual iconography, as well as projects that promote awareness and empowerment of those on the autism spectrum.

 

Her latest Oracle Series is inspired by the metaphysical, the unseen, the earthly vs. the celestial, and spiritual transformation. All the images are linocut and embellished with watercolor paints.

 

Her series, “Paper Dolls” was conceived while sitting at a table and cutting out strands of paper dolls to entertain her daughter. Something clicked, and she found herself imagining a story for each nameless, faceless form and became completely obsessed with the repetitive patterns that unfolded. This small moment lead to a whole series of work that investigates the complexities of the feminine experience, but in a playful way.

 

Salerno holds a BFA from The Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford, where she studied under NYC painter Pat Lipsky. Since then, Salerno was selected for residency at the renowned Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT, actively participated in many arts related auctions and events, and has exhibited internationally. Her works have been acquired and commissioned for inclusion in various private, corporate, and public collections.

Her art and writing has also been featured in the Autism Speaks website, the Artful Vagabond, 1340 Art Magazine, The Connecticut River Review and in many other online and print publications.
