Raised by strong, southern women who valued tradition, Lisa Underwood’s work is nostalgic with a twang of southern romanticism. She combines photography and mixed media techniques to visually examine themes of southern culture, the idea of home, childhood play, and identity.
Lisa is a Georgia artist living just north of Atlanta with her husband and two daughters. She received her BFA with a concentration in painting from Georgia Southern University in 2010 and her MA in Art Education from Kennesaw State University in 2014.
In addition to creating art full time, you can find Lisa teaching high school visual art courses, chasing after her two daughters, developing film in the darkroom, exploring north Georgia with her family, thrifting for treasures and spoiling her dog Frank.
