Lisa Congdon is a talented fine artist and illustrator based in San Francisco.
I have posted a few of her artworks before, and have been wanting to feature
some more. These chilly January days seem like a great time to do so,
since her pictures warm me up like a good cup of hot cocoa.
While her work explores a variety of media and styles,
it always expresses a great love of nature.
while her love of collecting found a creative outlet in the immensely popular blog
The recent show Boreas was inspired by Congdon's love of barren landscapes and
by her viewing of Heima, a beautiful documentary about the Icelandic band Sigur Rós.
I really enjoy this exploration of wildlife, arctic whiteness and colorful folkloric motifs!
