Catalina Window by Lisa McLean

NY artist: Lisa Mclean

Harrogate based artist Lisa McLean takes a look at the macabre side of life with her latest project 'Peculiar Pets'. It's a collection of bizarre animals in a pet shop who are used to rejection. Beware, they might make you feel a bit uncomfortable.

I am 22 and live and work in North Yorkshire, Harrogate. I studied Photography and Digital imaging at Leeds college of Art and Design, graduating with a distinction. I've always studied art from an early age, taking a keen interest in fine art.

Since completing the college course I have worked freelance on and off, developing my portfolio. I've spent a lot of time visiting art galleries in Britain and across the world. I gain a lot of pleasure from experiencing other artist's work and get a lot of inspiration and motivation from them.

I also find being out of my comfort zone very motivating; I often look to the macabre side of life for interest. I like to make people feel on edge when they look at my work.

I feel that I'm still finding out who I am and where I fit into the creative world. I have studied so many forms of art and have enjoyed them all. My most recent project is  ‘The Peculiar Pet Shop’. I am sewing small characters that are part of a pet shop where the pets are accustomed to rejection because of their abnormalities.

Since setting up the website I have had a lot of interest. This project is something I am really enjoying and am hoping to expand and use more of my creative talents by making cards and a short comic book.

Art is my true passion in life. It helps me escape from the normality of daily life. I hope that I can continue to be creative throughout my time and produce work to be proud of.
