Lisa Myers Bulmash is a collage and book artist who works primarily in acrylics, paper and found objects. Informally trained, Myers Bulmash began her career making handmade cards. After her father’s death in 2006, the artist felt compelled to take more personal risks in her creative life. Questions of identity, violence, and sacrifice now drive most of her work. The artist aims to highlight our fundamental human connections, and to inspire a change in how we treat each other. Myers Bulmash is a featured artist in “The Story of Art in America” docuseries. Her work resides in the city of Seattle’s art collection as well as six other municipal and institutional collections. The artist has received grants from the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation and other arts benefactors. Her work has been featured in the Seattle Times, on Seattle TV stations and in the Washington Post. Bulmash maintains strong ties to the Seattle art community via Artist Trust, Wa Na Wari and other organizations.
