Inspired by walks in nature, Lisa began focussing her art on the development of tranquil, visual stimulus in 2017, with the driver of increasing calm and wellbeing in viewers.
Mindsettle, is the culmination of her work, and is now being put into functional use, to calm patients in various clinical settings, including the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) in Brisbane.
Lisa explained that Mindsettle was designed to be a powerful catalyst for people to slow down, feel centred, and stay calm through art.
“Mindsettle uses the mixed media of natural images, curated to an original soundtrack, to invoke a deep sense of release in viewers,” explained Lisa.
