ARTISTIC INSPIRATIONS

As a young child, I spent many days tailing my father. My father (Donald Liscomb) was a purveyor, collector, and restorer of all things. He had an infinite supply of odd materials, relentless ideas, and a creative ability that could turn a pile of leather belts and old ties into chairs for a 12-piece dining room set. Through the years we transformed our ideas into whimsical art pieces made of the most ordinary materials. My dad has help to mold me into a pioneer for creating art out of the old with a meaning more humorous than one could ever see in the material alone. I am fortunate and blessed to have the opportunity to continue making meaning out of the ordinary with my dad and sharing this gift with others.

My mother, Bonnie Burdick has been painting since I was born. She taught me how to use a paint brush before learning how to use a fork and knife. I frequently rely on my mother to provide constructive feedback in the process of creating my art. Currently, my mother is a world traveler and often paints pieces reflective of her international inspirations.
