Lisa Junius is a Luxembourg-born artist who paints beautiful women and cosmic inspired ceramics. The 24-year-old artist now lives and works in Strasbourg, France where she finished her studies.
In her work she uses various shades of blues and white, however she sometimes paints with other colors, as well. She says that painting is her life and that she doesn’t has a favorite medium, because she loves exploring all the time.
“Art makes me happy, it makes me a purpose, it gives me full heart. It brings the colors to my world,” Junius told in an interview for Ballpit. “I think that, without having the possibility to create, everything would be grey.”
She gets her inspiration from books and is also inspired when she discovers a new medium. She usually starts her artwork with quick sketches, whilst other times she “lets it go.”
“This last part, letting go, is really important. From time to time, I need to just let my brush flow and not think about whether its ‘good’ or ‘bad’ or if people will like it, if I like it. If I don’t do this, I get stuck and that’s the worst as an artist.”
