About me

Industry Arts
Occupation artist
Location St. Paul, MN, United States
Introduction Welcome! Created by risa is a place where I share my creative process, studio happenings, and whatever is inspiring me at the moment. I enjoy being creative every day in different ways, but my greatest passion is painting. I primarily work with acrylics on canvas, but have begun experimenting with mixed media as well. My artwork explores many subject matters and themes, often drawing from life experiences. Through my art I look at what is hard in life and what brings us beauty. I explore relationships and the forces that keep us going. Please visit often and feel free to share your thoughts (I love reading comments!).
Interests making art, baking/cooking, baseball (MN Twins fanatic)
Favorite Movies Sweetland, Saving Grace, French Kiss, Michael, Love Actually
Favorite Music Sometimes I think my paintings should be named after the music I play while painting (I get my groove on in the studio!). Here's a small list of faves: James Taylor, Van Morrison, Bee Gees (a guilty pleasure), Andrea Bocelli, Norah Jones, Dixie Chicks, and every now and then a little 70s disco
