Art in the home of Lisa Golightly from Kiki&Polly

A: Art means to me…an experience.  Whether it is looking, listening, it doesn't matter.

R: Reading books / blogs / magazines ...I read far too many blogs to mention but some of my current favs are: Field & SeaBlissCory GibbonsFrench By DesignHingeRemodelista .My favorite magazines are home magazines, Living Etc., Inside Out, Elle Decor, Canadian House and Home


{the large horse painting above the fireplace by Lisa herself is actually based on a drawing her son made}

T: Trends I see in art or graphic design are…I always notice things that relate to how I'm feeling and working.  So because of that, I am seeing a lot of abstract, 'washes' of colors and shapes.

A: Artists I admire are...My dad, I see something new every time I look at his paintings.

N: Never will I ... stop making art.  

D: Dreams for my own work are about...I dream that I keep pushing myself and that my work continues to evolve and grow. 


P: Projects I'm currently working on are...I'm rather into painting horses right now and I have my hands full with my portraiture work and a couple exciting projects.

R: Relaxing I do at / when / if...If my art is my passion, horse back riding is my obsession.  It has been all my life.  

I: Interesting art-places online are...The Jealous CuratorDrooelI-want-a-print 


N: New in my home is...The pillows on my sofa by  Elizabeth Siegan available at hinge 

T: Tomorrow I like to go to...as it is likely to rain (again), I'd say coffee shop in the morning followed by a look around some pretty shops, a little art supply shopping them home!  I am actually quite a home body, especially if it is dreary out.

S: Studio, my studio is...My studio is finally emerging out its mess, which is a relief.  I dream of an open white, light filled space separate from our house that is completely dedicated to making art. Someday....
