Artwork by Lisa Lockett
Old World Artworks
Hello. My name is Lisa Lockett and I started drawing at the age of five. It seemed to come naturally for me and I enjoyed it so much that I could do it for hours. However, I put my art away and attained a degree in Journalism/Advertising from the University Of Missouri-Columbia. There, I studied Advertising and Design and was later able to own my own graphic design firm, Lockett Design, in the University Tower in St. Louis. Later I went to work for a prominent law firm in St.Louis as Marketing Coordinator. I left the firm to freelance as a designer and later an artist because I realized that is where my true passion and talent lies.
Drawing and painting is my true passion and I try to sketch in my journal everyday.
The biggest challenge in art for me is that I’m a perfectionist and sometimes it takes me awhile to get started because I have such high aspirations. I also have not had any formal trading in drawing.
I hope to learn in art how to draw like the masters Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt, and Michelangelo.
I have the utmost respect for the Drawing Academy because it teaches the fundamentals of drawing like the great masters.
I hope to win the Drawing Academy course to fulfill my passion and dream of drawing because I am currently painting and drawing full time and need some formal training.
I believe people should vote for me because a career as an artist is a life long passion of mine and I want my art to inspire and give back to the community. I take this very seriously.
