The Artist: Lisa Halstead
Ever since she was a child Lisa has loved any type of art or craft work. Lisa attended art classes with her father and was taught the basics of various mediums.
Lisa went on to study Graphic Design at Art College in Johannesburg. Together with her father they owned and ran a gallery and framing shop. During this period Lisa began to paint wildlife. Her work sold well in the shop and she then decided to become a full time artist.
Lisa takes pride in the fact that she has exhibited her art in South Africa, Australia and America and her work forms part of collections around the World.
The Book: "Heavens of Africa"
There are many beautiful books that have been written about South African birds. This one is very special because the illustrations have been artistically created by one of South Africa's most talented artists, Lisa Halstead.
You will be taken on a fascinating tour across South African skies, giving you repeated pleasure as you peruse the pages of this book filled with a diverse range of multi-hued birds through Lisa's eyes. Her uncanny ability to bring her subjects to life, almost entices you to reach out and touch the soft feathers of any one of the superbly rendered birds that look so real.
Once again she has succeeded in capturing the essence of these graceful winged creatures that bring our eyes and our ears pleasure year after year. Take the time to go through the different sections and connect with nature from the comfort of your living room.
