Lisa Walker is an Indigenous (x̄á’isla nation + british) artist from Kitimat BC Canada, currently based in Metro Vancouver. She earned her BFA from Emily Carr University in 2008, with a major in photography. Lisa’s art practice also includes beadwork. She forged a successful business as @lisa.beading in 2019. She explores traditional and contemporary themes, from pop culture to west coast design in her artwork. In journalistic, personal narratives, Lisa confides in her viewers her feelings of being an outsider, processing intergenerational trauma, and also finding joy and humour in the world. She loves to work in bold, bright colours, inspired by everything from NASA galaxy imagery to 90’s childrens toys. Her work is about resilience, joy, and genuine human experiences.
