Lisa Rush Illustrations

My Background

 I love picture books.  I love the process; the story and the wonderful coupling of pictures and words.  I have taken courses through the The Academy of Art University and I am a student of The Illustration Department and SVS Learn 

My Medium

I work in pencil, and soft watercolour washes.  My tools include; most importantly my coffee in my favourite coffee cup, pencils, white erasers, watercolors, brushes and my lightboard.

My Inspiration

Children, animals and weather directly influence my work.  My inspirations are also other artists; my favourites being Isabelle Arsenault, Rebecca Green and Lizbeth Zwerger's stunning images.
