Lisa Laughy's Profile
My artistic inspiration has its foundation in early medieval Irish / Celtic art - especially illuminated manuscripts like the Book of Kells and the Lindisfarne Gospels. I have found that much of the artwork I create in 2D translates very naturally to 3D relief carving. It wasn’t until I began carving that I realized how much of the design process for my 2D work is actually conceptualized in relief. I feel as if the years spent designing, drawing, and painting in 2D were actually done in preparation for working in wood, even though that was never part of the thought process at the time. Transforming these designs into wood is a very satisfying extension of my creative process.
