Lisa Blevens

 Lisa Blevens frequently peppers her figurative work to overflowing with brightly colored hearts, bunnies, stars and flowers floating on minimal fields of color. The maximalism of her images gives an early impression of abstraction.

And, yes, you likely saw her drawings featured in the recent film The Shack (they were on the walls of God’s house).
