The beginning of Biro Bugs...
Hi! I'm Lise, the ballpoint pen queen! After completing a fine art degree in 2012, unable and unwilling to work for free as is often expected in the art world, I decided to pursue a career based around my other love - travel.
Now, after nearly six years working in travel marketing, I decided to return to art and set up BiroBugs, a concept I dreamt of for many years.
Based in my small London studio, BiroBugs combines my big love of travel, art and the natural world, with the aim to raise money for conservation and the environment through art, donating a percentage of profits from each print to a relating charity.
I use an unusual medium - ballpoint biro pens - which makes my work completely unique, and has gained me the nickname "The Biro Queen of South London"!
