Lisa Sheehan is a 2D/3D cgi freelance illustrator based in Bedfordshire, nr. London. During her BA Illustration at Kingston University she decided she wanted to become a 3D artist/model maker. Back then that meant literally making the model shooting it and all the faff that went with it, which as a young graduate seemed all a bit too much so Lisa fell into the world of graphic design becoming an Art Director for the Financial Times and spent the next 20 years commissioning CGI artists.
The drive to create never left and the desire to produce her own work became so strong that she decided to create the illustrations herself. By working night and day, to grasp the technology of the CGI wizardry, her dreams of ‘model making’ were now back on track albeit within the digital world.
Lisa is a 2D/3D ‘image maker’ producing imaginative CGI illustrations that are often conceptual and typographical with a pop of colour. Lisa often mixes 2D and 3D to create illustrations for advertising and editorial work. The idea that you can, with CGI technology, create almost anything your creative mind can conjure up continues to inspire Lisa every day.
Lisa has extensive design and magazine cover Art Direction experience, having worked as an Art Director for The Financial Times for the past 20 years. Up until December 2020 (Covid struck and redundancy ensued) Lisa art directed as well as illustrated the covers of several of their financial titles.
