Little gives me more pleasure than watching a client successfully attain a major goal.
In this episode of the podcast, I share the story of Lisa Kovvuri, with whom I worked in my (then) Art Biz Inner Circle as she was starting her project, The Portrait Experience.
Lisa and I discuss:
- How The Portrait Experience was conceived and executed at Whistler House Museum of Art.
- How she found people in her local community to sit for her.
- What she learned during the process.
- What’s next.
We also find out that most of the paintings have since sold.
It’s been a joy to watch Lisa's progress and the ultimate culmination of her efforts—the opening of her museum show.
I hope you are inspired by this conversation about how she accomplished her colossal goal.
About My Guest
Lisa Kovvuri is an American figurative painter working in Southern New Hampshire. Her work uses the genre of portraiture to explore the psychology and emotions we live and move through every day, with a goal of creating a compelling, personal, and intimate experience, both visually and emotionally, with the human presence in her paintings.
In addition to her exhibition at Whistler House Museum of Art, she was a resident studio artist there from 2014 to 2019 where she also taught drawing, painting, and printmaking classes.
Born in Oakland, CA and raised on Cape Cod, MA, she received a BFA in printmaking from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1991.
