The artist is influenced by her immediate environment such as 'home and the everyday'. Her subjects in her work are sometimes autobiographical. She is interested in the outsider and the vulnerability of human form, the vagueness of our existence within social terrains. Humor, play and remnants of Gothic and punk aesthetic. Lisa-Marie is a mother, artist and activist. She is interested in writers like Patti smith, Patrick Kavanagh, Pj harvy and Pj Brady, Lydia Lunch, Aine Philips, Arthur Rimbaud, Sylvia Plath, Sarah Kane, Pipi lotti Rist , Kim Gordan, Patrick Galvin, Dave Lordan and many more..
