About Lisa Baltes
I am mostly a self-trained artist. I got interested in printmaking while taking an art class at the Trout Art Museum in Appleton taught by another really talented newaa artist- Stephanie Harvey.
I think that printmaking is magic. Since I burnish most of my prints by hand my favorite part is "the reveal peel"! I love nature and care for the environment so I try to use environmentally safe inks, recycled paper and re-purposed items to create texture and other detail.
My idea of art is to find beauty and peacefulness. If I use text in my work I want it to be inspirational and uplifting. This year (2019) will be dedicated to learning to find hope and to closely examine the beauty of flowers. I hope to see you around the Fox Valley!
