Featured Artist

Lisa Cyckowski

Acrylic and Oil Pastel Painter

I was the kid that spent hours on the cover of a book report & fifteen minutes actually writing about the book. I was the kid that kept herself distracted in doodles that captured my imagination. Each week I looked forward to the donkey challenge! This simply meant that I studied intently, copied, perfected & replicated a two-inch donkey illustration in back of the TV Guide. Hours would slip by as I played & worked blissfully with art supplies at the ready, provided by my encouraging dad. Some girls went to ballet or ice-skating lessons. Some were mad for dress-up, make-up, boys and love songs. A blank sheet of paper is what did it for me. The satisfaction, peace & pleasure I experience while creating keeps me grounded, light-hearted & real.

I am a self-taught artist. I’m continually surprised, delighted when lines, like little miracles, take on a life of their own. They turn, twist, and wriggle themselves into being. They become contributing characters that express themselves in ways we all might be able to relate to. These characters inspire me. They reassure as I manage my own encounters with depression. Stringer is the beacon of light inside us that illuminates our path to wellness, spreads sunshine & highlights the importance of MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS.
