Hello, I’m Lisa, an artist author and illustrator based in South London.
I host creative workshops, both online and in my garden studio, paint paintings, make personalised doodles of dog walkers, pastel drawings of cheeky swimmers & create portraits and pictures just for you.
Each piece is completely handmade by me in my studio, painted, cut and collaged or illustrated in my favourite mixed-media style. Pictures come signed, dated and framed or unframed. Perfect personalised presents for any occasion, and each one completely bespoke.
I realised, having been drawing for well over 40 years, that aside from loving it as a career, it really makes me feel better too. Happily dOOdling every day, I’m embracing the power of drawing to calm the mind and unlock creativity.
SO, I’ve also created a series of Doodling Books. Guided drawing for you to do anytime, anywhere. They’re great fun for folk young and old, and really do take you away from the hustle, bustle & technical treadmill we find ourselves on these days. Even just a five-minute pause can help such a lot.
Thanks for having a peek at my page. I’d be delighted to make something for you.
I started out as a printed textile designer, training at Central Saint Martins & The Royal College of Art. I’m a devoted lover of cabbage & marshmallows – although not necessarily at the same time!
At the age of 22 I founded my label Lisa Stickley London & sold some of my very first products to Paul Smith. In later years I collaborated with folk from Burberry to Liberty, Anthropologie & Isetan, selling products across the globe.
I took a break in 2015 to start exploring a new path.
These days I write & illustrate children’s books, & host creative workshops, both online & in my studio. I make personalised paintings of dog walkers, cheeky swimmers, forget-me-nots & favourite folk.
I’ve also created a series of dOOdling Books to help calm the mind & unlock creativity. Guided drawing for you to do anytime, anywhere, taking you away from the hustle, bustle & technical treadmill we find ourselves on these days. Even just a five-minute pause can help such a lot.
Drawing always makes me feel better. I hope it works for you too.
