Freelance Artist Lisa Pope Exhibits Artwork at City Utility Office The City of Zachary is proud to showcase local artists from the Zachary Artist Guild at the City Hall Utility Office throughout the year. Zachary newcomer Lisa Pope is presently exhibiting several of her pieces, including “Two Blades of Grass”, soft pastel, “Purple Iris”, watercolor, “Curiosity”, watercolor and “Blue Star Fish Discovery”, watercolor. Her skills and expertise includes, watercolor, pastel, acrylic paint, graphite and charcoal draw-

ings. She also does commissioned paintings and portraits from photos. She is presently a member of the Louisiana Watercolor Society and the Zachary Artist Guild. Lisa has always loved art, even though she chose to pursue a career in education, serving as a school counselor in Virginia Beach, Virginia. With a career at hand, marriage and family, she was left with little time for art. After growing to miss it, she dug out her old paints

and gave them a whirl, immediately reconnecting with her original love for painting. Lisa says, “I apply paint and can’t wait to see what happens. Pablo Picasso was quoted as saying, ‘Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.’ This is what I am attempting to do–return to the art I love and see the world with fresh new eyes... It feels like a rebirth.”
