Born in Lancashire, Lisa McGilben is an artist who works in drawing, painting, photography & film. Currently residing in London, she has spent a decade in South Africa. Her educational background includes studies in design, art history, and the culmination of a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree in Contemporary Media Practice from the University of Westminster, London.

At the core of her artistic exploration is the revelation of the human condition – a theme that delves into both the power and vulnerability inherent in our nature. Her work serves as a visual narrative that invites contemplation on the multifaceted nature of human existence - a journey that unfolds through the interplay of form, expression, and the delicate balance between power and vulnerability. Through her art, she aspires to provoke thought, evoke emotion, and contribute to a deeper understanding of the human experience.
