D’Lisa Fort

Born 1968, San Bernadino, California
Has practiced at Creative Growth since 2009

Consumed by mythological tales, D’Lisa Fort’s work is rich with symbolism and elaborate storylines. Though personally reserved and mostly private in demeanor, the constant dialogue of scenes and characters she envisions provide a secret escape that we are only so fortunate to take part of through her art. From galactic queens and Medusas to spell-casting wizards and bow-tied skeletons, no magic is lost as D’Lisa lays out her storyboard. She is currently working on creating a tarot card deck, from which our own mystic stories and unpredictable fortunes might be revealed.
