lisa-kurec-in-her-studio-nov-2015Lisa Kurec studied Visual Arts at Gippsland Institute of Advanced Education, Churchill (now called Federation University Australia). Lisa specialised in Printmaking and after completing a Graduate Diploma of Education (in 1981) has taught art at many secondary Colleges in Gippsland, over the last 22 years.

Lisa’s art teaching has been committed to supporting the development of young artists while remaining a practicing artist herself.

Exhibiting her works, Lisa has participated in group shows, sold artworks through local galleries and taken part in local art shows and open studio events.

Born of migrant Ukrainian parents, Lisa has been continually inspired by the rich Ukrainian customs and rituals.

She works in etching and linocuts with delicate realism and authenticity to record a narrative of a certain time and place.

Lisa is equally inspired by the natural and rural environment and the challenges of development that are changing the rural appearance of where she lives at Drouin West, Victoria.
