Lisa Travers is a Bristol based collage and mixed media artist. Her original paper cut collages have been exhibited at RWA, Spike Island and Bruton Art Factory. Design commissions include Bestival and Glastonbury festivals as well as bespoke wallpapers and fabrics for private collectors. With a background as a tour manager and then a scene painter / prop maker for the circus, Lisa has a DIY attitude to her process and draws inspiration from anatomy, folk stories, pop art and Victoriana. Using 18th & 19th century resources and materials, Lisa expresses matters close to her such as feminism, social / environmental issues and health in reference to her neurodivesity and disabilities.


Lisa exhibited at the 2024 Bath Art Fair and her Art Merch Collection can be found at independent Bristol stores including Stokes Croft China and The Ethical Gift Shop.
