I’d like to live happily ever after…with art by fantastic San Francisco based illustrator and fine artist Lisa Congdon. While reading some of my favorite blogs I spotted Lisa’s work and fell instantly in love with it. The vibrant colours, the extraordinary motives, and her love for detail made me go weak and with Christmas approaching I’ve put one of her amazing prints right up on my wish list. Her art draws lots of inspiration from nature yet it is so urban – this amazing juxtaposition of feelings evoked by her art made me a huge fan of hers. So, here is my ode to Lisa Congdon in San Fran from remote Munich, Germany.

She’s fantastic with colors! You’re so right on about Lisa drawing inspirations from nature and making it modern. I’d love to frame that deer painting!
I’d love to frame the yellow bike – so cool & urban!!
For some reason that ship is appealing to me – all are gorgeous though!
Lisa’s work is pretty rockin’, right! I love her use of colour across all of the works you highlighted here, but the deer is my FAVE! Have you seen her forest print? I love that one as well!
Right!!! I saw the forest prints, too. Well, I spent quite a time on her website:-))
Lisa is so talented, I am a huge fan of her work…I recently wrote about her Creative Mornings talk and how it inspired me at http://thespacesinbetween.org/2011/11/17/collecting-collections/

Really Like Lisa’s work. Has been popular in the US for awhile, great to see it here as well. Hope we can start seeing her work in shows in the UK – I have only seen it online to date.
