Visual art has been an important part of Lisa Laohaphan’s life for as long as she can remember. An inspirational trip to New York finally pushed her from art appreciator to painter and she began painting to distract her from the pressures of daily life. During a year-long sabbatical in 2013, Laohaphan began to develop her skills and her individual style as a painter. Her time spent traveling Asia, the U.S. and Europe heavily influenced her view of the world and her art.
“I would describe my style as trying to capture a memory in a flat but colorful and tactile way. I paint in 2 1/4 dimensions.”
