Celebration in the imaginary world of carnival cats is a joy and inspiration for this artist. The carnival is place where we gather to enjoy vibrant colors, liveliness, and laughter hoping to forget about the troubles of routine life for a little while. In this collection, Lisa introduces playful characters and patterns that dance with brilliant colors reminiscent of the festivals we enjoy.

She has challenged her own boundaries by introducing a menagerie of characters including works like “The Moustache Gang” or “Tightrope Walker” and “Carnival Queen”, all of these and many more will spark a nostalgic charm of their own. Enjoy the imagination of this artist, she is sure to lift your spirits with this feline fiesta.
