West Palm Beach artist Lisa Kaw’s work stands out not just for her distinct collage-like style—think vibrant colors, bold lines, and mixed patterns—but for its infectious joy. “My art celebrates the happy things in life,” says Kaw. “Sunshine, rainbows, cacti with mustaches.”
Kaw, who has painted two murals at Rosemary Square, recently transitioned from acrylics to digital art and now relies solely on an iPad, Apple Pencil, and Procreate. Between licensing her work for canvas prints at Abacoa’s Ready2HangArt and selling on WayFair and Overstock, creating is her full-time gig. Fortunately, our tropical surrounds provide constant inspiration.
“Up north, everything turns gray in the winter, but here the party swings into high gear,” she says. “The other day I wore a giant toucan ring with a crazy toucan purse and didn’t even stand out.”
Next on Kaw’s docket: expanding into textiles, stationery, and beyond. “I’d love to roll into Target one day and grab a Lisa Kaw notebook, wrapping paper, rug, and pillows.”
