About Francescon Portraiture

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

Photograph in its simplest terms is writing with light.  The light transforms into a pen, and the subject becomes a story which will be told.

As a portrait artist, I seek to reveal relationships and emotions.  As I use the lens to interact with the subject before me, so begins the exploration with light that truly determines the final story.  The light unveils a story through the texture and shape of a flower; by sculpting the lines of a dancer or by reflecting the joy and life in the eyes of a puppy.

Everyone and everything has a story.  Invite Francescon Portraiture to tell yours.

 

Artist Bio

Lisa has been capturing the relationships and personalities of families and children with her camera since 2004. Over the past three years, her focus has changed and her primary client now has fur, a tail and whiskers. Lisa spends her time creating portrait art of family pets, as well as service and therapy animals.

In her studio, she creates a warm and loving environment for pets and works with their owners to create heirlooms that will be treasured in the years to come.

Lisa holds a Master’s Degree in Education from Western Illinois University and taught in the public schools for many years.  She continues to teach photography classes in her studio covering a wide range of topics.  Her class sizes are small so she can offer her students a hands-on experience and individual attention.   

Lisa is a Certified Professional Photographer and has been awarded the Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman degrees through the Professional Photographers of America.  She is a member of the American Society of Photographers, one of the most prestigious photographic associations in the world and an association that must be invited into through photographic achievement.

Among her many awards and accolades, Lisa has been recognized as one of the top 10 photographers in Illinois in both 2015 and 2016 from the Associated Professional Photographers of Illinois.
