About the instructor: 

About Lisa Thorpe -  As an artist I am an explorer and observer first.  I like to wander and wonder, let things percolate while I ponder.  I have numerous sketchbooks full of chicken scratch drawings and cryptic thoughts.  Over time (and often during a long hot shower) an idea will keep rising to the surface, I might even push that thought bubble below the surface, telling it I don’t have time for you, but the best ideas won’t pop and so I move on from thought to action.  I have used many mediums over the years from fabric to painting to printing and collage but the unifying thread through all these mediums is a love of the puzzle.  I like to problem solve, to piece and play with an idea until it can take shape as a visual idea. Once I solve a creative problem I have a drive to share it with others. I have been teaching art to adults and children for many years in the public schools and at art centers and retreats venues across the west. Currently I am the resident artist at The Bishop’s Ranch retreat and conference center outside of Healdsburg, California.  I have had technique articles featured in Cloth Paper Scissors, and Quilting Arts magazines and have taught surface design and art quilting workshops at Mendocino Art Center, Craft Napa, and numerous quilt guilds throughout the west.
