Lisa Arata – Greeley, Colorado

A Gallery favorite is Lisa’s whimsical people. Lisa calls her pieces “Grannies” but they are not all little old lady figures.
Many are painted directly on found object rocks, but she has recently also begun to sculpt with air-dry clay, which presents the opportunity for more expressive details. Lisa experiments with armatures, wrestling them into shape, and is always learning how to work the clay into something with wit and personality.
