Lisa Matrundola was born the youngest of five children in Montreal, Quebec. Her parents immigrated from Italy and England in the late 1950’s. As an adolescent, she enjoyed dance and representational drawing and painting. After earning a BFA from the University of Georgia, Lisa worked in Atlanta as a designer and illustrator. Amid raising two children, she established a custom cake bakery, renovated and managed several rental properties and taught group fitness classes, but something was missing. Lisa entered the 2016 Artfield’s exhibition, where she received one of ten Merit Awards. This recognition ignited a passion to explore themes of female identity through painting and sculpture. The work encourages conversations about our collective survival and coexistence on planet earth. Lisa is a current student at SCAD Atlanta.
