Lisa Takahashi is a Somerset-based artist, who makes linocut prints, oil paintings and watercolours.
She is best known for her bold, geometric linocut prints of cyclists. Her figurative paintings are colourful and expressive, and have the influence of British Modernism and French Impressionism in equal measure.
Her work has been exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, The Royal Watercolour Society Contemporary Watercolour Competition, the New English Art Club, the Royal Society of British Artists and the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers.
In 2018 she reached the semi-finals of Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year, and in 2022 she was chosen as the expert judge for the Devon heats in Channel 5's Watercolour Challenge.
She writes regularly for the Jackson's Art Blog about drawing, painting and printmaking techniques.
Artworks are available for purchase and the artist is available for commissions. For more information and enquiries please get in touch via the contact page.
