About the author
Lisa Kerpoe is an accomplished artist,
author and instructor. She left a successful
career in human resources twelve years
ago to pursue her passion - creating art.
She focused on textiles because she loves
their tactile quality and is entranced by the
beauty of cloth gently moving with the air
Although Lisa is primarily self-taught, she
has studied with several artists and
instructors. Their generosity and encouragement fueled Lisa’s artistic
journey. Lisa feels strongly about continuing that circle by sharing what she
has learned to support others in their creative journey.
To that end, she began teaching surface design workshops eight years ago.
In 2011, she released her first book, Vibrant Color: Combining Soy Wax and
Dye for Brilliant Results, co-authored with Jane Dunnewold. In 2010, she
produced two instructional DVDs, Vibrant Color (with Jane Dunnewold) and
Irresistible Texture, a comprehensive tutorial on the use of five water-based
Lisa’s work has been shown in exhibitions throughout the United States and
internationally. She is an adjunct faculty member at the Southwest School
of Art in San Antonio, Texas, and teaches textile and surface design
workshops across the United States. Lisa was juried into the ArtCloth
Network in 2008. Professional memberships include the Surface Design
Association and the Fiber Artists of San Antonio.
Lisa feels that she is living her dream - with a balance between studio time
and time spent in workshops sharing her knowledge. She resides in San
Antonio, Texas with her husband and a variety of foster animals.
