Some time ago I started to write some poems about my innermost thoughts and feelings.  I am not formally trained in writing, though I did have a minor in Comparative Lit in college, and I am in the process of producing a graphic novel in the near future.  For now I’ve dabbled in some poetry and prose, and they aren’t so great but I’ve learned to combine them with some imagery.  Hence the series “Poetic Reflections” is born.

This is the first of the series I’ll be posting here from time to time.  It’s not much of a poetry, and it reads from bottom to top, instead of the other way around.  I get the inspiration from Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken.”

Lisa Lee is an artist and writer based in Southern California. She was educated at Cal State University Long Beach where she received her BFA in Illustration, and originally focused her career goal in animation and/or comic books. After eight years freelancing on various projects from web graphics to concept art she now devotes full time to painting and drawing as well as writing and producing graphic novels. She combines her past experiences in animation and graphic art with the elements of modern masters such as Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Keith Haring. Much of her style revolves around Expressionism and Pop Art, and she treats each piece independently of one another; in short, she uses different styles and techniques for different subject matters. Her interests spans a wide array, from social and political issues, popular culture, movies, history, mythology, and her own personal experiences. She tends to shift back and forth between the light and the dark side; her work will often reflect her mood. When not associating herself with art Lisa enjoys movies, listening to music, driving around aimlessly, and occasionally dabbles on weird hobbies such as cooking, jewelrymaking, and picking weeds.
