Lisa Takahashi

Lisa Takahashi is a Somerset-based artist, writer and teacher who works in watercolour, linocut and oil painting. She has taught painting and printmaking workshops for over 15 years and was an expert judge on Season 1 of Channel 5’s Watercolour Challenge in 2022.

Lisa’s own practice is primarily concerned with responding to everyday observations; finding ways of interpreting movement and mood using colour and experimental mark-making as well as printmaking, painting and drawing techniques.

She is best known for her bold, geometric linocut prints of cyclists. Her figurative paintings are colourful and expressive and have the influence of British Modernism and French Impressionism in equal measure.

She has taught painting and printmaking workshops for over 15 years. She has exhibited her work across the UK, including with the New English Art Club, The RBA, The Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, the Royal Watercolour Society and the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. In 2018 she reached the semi-finals of Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year.

Lisa is also a regular writer for the Jackson’s Art Blog where she shares her expertise in drawing, painting and printmaking techniques. She visited the Jackson’s studio to talk about watercolour painting and answer your questions.
