I’m Lisa Miguez — artist / maker of creative things. I live, work, create and play in Moh’kinsstis (aka Calgary, Alberta) Canada.


– – Lisa Miguez

Creative making for me can mean many things: dabbling/immersing myself in digital designs/artwork, pencil drawing, acrylic painting, font design, music composition, my website, polymer clay sculpting and woodworking. I’m willing to try my hand at most any digital or hands-on creative outlet in general.

August 2020: This is Max – my first attempt at a 1:2 scale polymer clay sculpture of a juvenile Swainson’s Hawk

Yes I know it’s cliche, but Nature (birds mostly) really is at the heart of very nearly every project I undertake. More accurately, it’s the encounter as a whole that truly inspires me, not just the pretty bird. As an amateur bird watcher and photographer, there is almost always some aspect of feathered inspiration incorporated into most of my work (painting, sculpting or photographic prints, for example). Here’s just a few of my favourite photos I have taken:

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, inspired by current events/politics.

I’ve had a website presence on the internet (grafxbylisa.com) since 2002. Every year I try new things: new styles, colour schemes, features, etc.. This place is my experimental virtual playground.

You can contact me anytime about any of my art/crafts/designs, products available on my store or current projects I am currently undertaking (or plan to do in the future), or just to say hi.
