Please meet our PFATT Marketplace Spotlight Artist of the Month
- Lisa Bovina of Pearl Avenue Studios
I am Lisa Bivona and I create at, Pearl Avenue Studios. I create Distinct One of a Kind Folk Art, using paper mache, to sculpt unique Holiday and whimsical characters from my imagination. I'm a wife, a MOM, a Honey (that's what my grandchildren call me. How lucky am I? Very!).
The studio is a humble little room that once housed a bed, imagine that...now it's the most beautiful mess, one has ever seen. I am a self taught artist who just creates. I use several mediums in my art, oils, watercolor, pen and ink, and even crayolas. I started painting about 18 years ago, and recently, (about 8 years), I started sculpting, just to relax.
I have little characters dancing in my head, screaming, create me! I used to co-own a brick and mortar shop, selling vintage junk and restyled pieces of the past. But when Halloween rolled around, I didn't have much to offer, so I bought some paper mache, and whipped up a few pumpkin candy containers to resemble the vintage style of the 20s and 30s. I had no idea what I was doing, but darn, I was having a good time.
Closing the shop lead to, Pearl Avenue Studios, because I couldn't stop creating. In one form or another I will always create. I aspire to...well we all have grandiose ideas! One day I will achieve it.
