Lisa Carney grew up on the Gaspe peninsula, Quebec Canada. An artistic family inspired her love for Art and Music. For her, being an artist represents playing the many roles skill and knowledge grant her. She has chosen the name Asil to sign her art which is her first name spelled backwards and symbolizes her creative inner child.
Using mainly acrylic, she spontaneously paints rows of textured colors in an abstract style, referring to the sedimentary layers of the earth. She also works with paper and found objects, and often inserts them in her artwork. Lisa's modern and contemporary paintings range from intimate miniatures to larger commanding pieces.
