LISSA HERSCHLEB

Mixed Media Painting

With little preconception of image, color or technique, Herschleb sits at her drawing table with pencil in hand, summoning up a feeling to accompany an image to paint. She's come to believe that her motivation and inspiration comes from the National Geographic magazines that captivated her as a child. She sat amazed by the photographs of what was beyond her small world; insects the color of eggs at Easter, men painted in ceremonial delight, even plants that seemd to be from another planet.

From a family of artists, Herschlebs talents were nurtured from an early age. She is a lifelong resident of the San Francisco bay area and studied at the College of Marin, Kentfield, and CCAC, Oakland.
