The Art of Christmas - Lisi Martin

The art of Lisi Martin fascinates me; in fact, if it was possible to melt when looking at these paintings, that would describe me!

Lisi Martin is a Spanish artist and illustrator who is famous for her highly detailed and romanticized pictures of children. At the age of 16, Lisi began formal art studies in Barcelona, although she is quick to point out that the type of illustration for which she is famous is not something that was taught at art schools in the early 1960s. After working for a couple of Spanish companies, Lisi made a breakthrough in her art career when she joined the Swedish greeting card company, Pictura, in 1983.

Enjoy Lisi's art and feel free to leave a comment (click on images to enlarge) . . .
