Lisa Montanaro


Lisa Montanaro has taught on the Faculty of Worcester Art Museum and MassArt. She holds a B.F.A. from Paier College of Art and has studied color theory and printmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design. Ms. Montanaro has worked as a freelance illustrator in Washington, D.C. Clients include: U.S. News and World Report; Mondadori Publishing, Italy; The Los Angeles Times News Syndicate; The Washington Times; The Chronicle of Higher Education; The Weekly Reader Corporation. Lisa established and ran a successful illustration business through self-representation with clients in the editorial and publishing fields in national and international markets on a freelance basis. Working in mixed-media incorporating oil painting, photography and collage, she has exhibited and won national juried competitions in Boston, New York and Washington, D.C. She gained international and national recognition for excellence in educational journalism for work on social issues such as teen pregnancy, gang violence and AIDS education. Lisa has now begun to work in the printmaking field. Most recently producing monoprints. These monoprints are achieved by painting on a piece of plexi-glass and then running it through a press for a single print in simple terms. The process is immediate and a departure from the more labor intensive and technique heavy illustration work of the past. Because of the immediacy of the printmaking process, her work is freer with an active line quality that she welcomes. She tends to work from life using the figure, found objects or the natural world. These are subjects that have a special quality that speak to her in a way other objects may not. The results have a graphic quality that Ms. Montanaro has embraced over the last five years and continues to explore today in her painting and printmaking. Group Shows include Bromfield Gallery, Boston, MA; The Visual Club, New York, N. Y.; The Arts Club, Washington, D.C. and The Worcester Art Museum, Worcester, MA.
