Lisa Krannichfeld was born and raised in Little Rock, AR in an interesting cultural mix of a Chinese family living in the American South.
Her experiences growing up in these two intermixing cultures and their traditions have greatly influenced her work, which primarily focuses on the woman as its subject. Her expressive portraits refute the traditional portrayal of women being passive subjects to gaze upon, evident in their confrontational, and at times defiant expressions. Lisa often uses traditional Chinese ink and watercolor materials in a nontraditional uncontrolled, free-flowing way often mixed with unconventional materials. Lisa's work has been featured in numerous publications and exhibitions nationally and internationally including shows across the United States, Asia, Australia, and Europe. Her work has received critical acclaim including the Grand Award winner in the 2017 Fort Worth Community Arts Center Juried Exhibition, Best of Show in the 2017 Magic City Art Connection Art Fair in Birmingham, AL, and the Delta Award in the prestigious 57th Annual Delta Juried Exhibition in 2015. She has been named “One To Watch” in Saatchi Art Magazine, a “Woman to Watch” by Soiree` Magazine in her home state of Arkansas, and has had work featured in Anthropologie. Her work is included in several private and corporate collections throughout her home state of Arkansas as well as in collections around the world.
