Hey! I’m Lisa Miguez – artist/maker of creative things in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
“CREATIVITY IS CONTAGIOUS. PASS IT ON.“– Albert Einstein
When I get the urge to create/make something, I might dabble in: digital design/artwork, pencil drawing/acrylic art painting, font design, music composition, polymer clay sculpting, woodworking and quite honestly, any digital or hands-on medium in general. I always have at least a couple of projects on the go at any given time.
Nature – birds, specifically – is at the heart of very nearly every project I undertake. As an avid bird watcher and photographer, I incorporate at least some aspect of feathered freedom into much of my work (painting, sculpting or photographic prints, for example). Here’s just a few of my fav snaps:
While birds are my main creative inspiration (and bird watching my go-to comfort activity), once in a blue wolf supermoon, I might be inclined to draw something that is way out of my comfort zone.
All of my creations are perfectly imperfect and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Most of my tangible projects (eg. drawing/painting/sculpting/woodworking) are OOAK.
And finally, I have managed/designed my own website since 2002. It’s one of those nerdy/creative/sometimes stressful things I really enjoy immersing myself into despite the very time-consuming nature of it. I do at least one major redesign of my site every year that reflects my current creative vibe.
Oh, one more thing… Once upon a time, I also dabbled in iPhone app design. Though no longer available on the App Store, I made a simple app back in 2011. Who knows if it will happen again…?
You can contact me anytime about any of my art/crafts/designs or products available on my store.
