Lisa Jeanne Graf

I was born in 1966 in Hartford, CT. My first art influences were the suburban wilds of Portland, CT and then the mountains and rivers of West Cummington, MA. Currently the trees and flowers of Boston contribute to my work as well.

After receiving a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art, in painting over 25 years ago, I have worked as a painter, illustrator, designer, animator, jeweler, potter, and sculptor. I have continued my education with classes at the Museum School and The Art Institute of Art.

The influences that now shape my work are being a parent to a 15 year daughter, public policy advocacy (with a focus on education) and supporting disability rights (with a focus on autism). I want my work to offer to the world something useful, positive and ethical.
