To celebrate the Bicentenary at Dulwich Picture Gallery, local designer-illustrator Lisa Stickley has taken inspiration from the Gallery’s heritage as England’s first purpose-built public art gallery. This delightful imagery shows modern visitors in quiet contemplation of a dense hang, alluding to the sense of awe their predecessors would have experienced entering the gallery for the first time 200 years ago.
A graduate of both Central Saint Martins and the Royal College Of Art, Lisa interned for the legendary textile designer Jack Lenor Larson in New York and has since collaborated with the likes of Burberry, Harrods, Liberty and John Lewis to name a few. A prolific collector of everything that inspires her, Lisa’s long-time love of flea markets has informed her quintessentially English style. She views life through a charmingly nostalgic lens and her illustrations usually start life as pen, paint or pastel on a sheet of vintage paper.
