Art is an exploration of my everyday experience as a human being. I enjoy developing connections with others, connections of a particular kind. I make safe spaces in which to explore the strange, the unusual and the fantastical. My art has also been described as a splash of wit, a sprinkle of social commentary, a dash of humour and a bucket of fun.
Lisa Ng was born in Hamilton, Ontario. As a child she immediately held an interest in being a poet of sorts. She attended the Dundas Valley School of Art and graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD) 2007, obtaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in Integrated Media (narrative work: computers, performance and zines).
Lisa considers herself a self-taught artist. She gets inspired by people. Lisa Ng has won numerous awards including those from the Scarborough Arts Council and the Artist’s Network of Riverdale and has received positive reviews from both the Globe and Mail and NOW Magazine. Lisa Ng is also the Rogue Leader of The Spooky Astronauts Drawing Club, a friend of Pablo Jueves and a registered home care nurse, when she’s not painting.
Lisa Ng makes art everyday.
