Lisa Michot is a mixed-media artist who resides in Lafayette, Colorado. She received her BFA from Louisiana Tech University, her MFA from Brooklyn College in New York and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. She exhibits her work primarily around the Denver metro area, and teaches Art at Front Range Community College in Longmont and Westminster.
Lisa developed her technique of using papier-mâché after moving to Boulder, CO in 1999 and finding it perfect for the dry climate. Through this technique she has tapped into her Cajun background of south Louisiana and the Mardi Gras culture of color, humor, and spontaneity. Her aesthetic is on-the-spot, intuitive and immediate, with a humorous, whimsical twist.
