Lisa Matthias is an artist residing in rural Alberta, Canada. She completed her Master of Fine Arts in printmaking at the University of Alberta, and prior to that carried out a Master of Science in plant ecology from the University of Manitoba, and a Bachelor of Science in ecology from the University of Guelph. Lisa is an artist and scientist.
Her work draws from her experiences as an ecologist, and she often captures microscopic images and videos in her creative practice. The idea that everything is part of a larger assemblage, emphasized by the recognition of patterns and relatedness across species and scales of life, is a central theme in her work.
