Lisa Schonberg is a printmaking artist working with a variety of processes including relief, intaglio, monoprinting, screenprinting and cyanotypes.

She has been a resident artist at Zygote Press in Cleveland since 2007 where she prints and teaches.
Our natural environment can be a source of peace and mystery. What inspires me most is how nature can be instantly captivating and calming as well as full of excitement and surprises. Utilizing printmaking materials, techniques and the spontaneous development of imagery inherent in the making of monoprints, I channel my observations into printing abstract images related to ideas I have while experiencing and studying nature. Some of my ideas are related to water reflections, wind currents, earth forms, shadows, foliage and other natural ephemera. My abstracted and patterned layers, colors and forms are meant to be a celebration of the beauty and majesty in nature. In addition, I believe that nature and art can have restorative value for the human spirit. It is my goal to make work that is uplifting. I hope to inspire us to contemplate topics beyond our everyday existence as a way of diffusing the drama of the times we live in.
