About the Artist

Idaho artist, Lisa Flowers Ross, creates contemporary, abstract artworks using fabric that she hand dyes. Her artworks are pieced together using a home sewing machine which is also used to “draw” her own hand-maneuvered patterns of free-motion stitching to create distinctive textures.

Working in various media over the years, Flowers Ross started creating art with fabric in 2001. Fabric continues to be her main medium. In the last six years, the artist has begun exploring and creating in the medium of printmaking, as well.

Her artwork has been exhibited in solo, group and juried exhibitions nationally and are included in private, public and corporate collections. Flowers Ross has also created public artworks for the cities of Boise, Meridian and Ketchum, Idaho. She has been the recipient of grants from the Idaho Commission on the Arts and the Alexa Rose Foundation. She has been a featured artist in Quilting Arts magazine, Greenbelt magazine and the e-zine, In Stitches.

Flowers Ross holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art (drawing), as well as a degree in Business. She is a juried artist member of the professional groups, Studio Art Quilt Associates, Northwest Designer Craftsmen, and Boise Open Studio Collective Organization.

Involved in other art experiences in the past, Flowers Ross worked intermittently as a curatorial assistant at the Boise Art Museum for over 20 years and was a voluntary art teacher for her daughter’s elementary class for seven years. In addition, she has curated several exhibitions and is an independent contractor for exhibition installations.

The artist enjoys living in Boise, Idaho, where she occasionally teaches workshops in her home, can hike the foothills, practice yoga, ride her bike downtown and along the Boise river and nordic ski at the local ski resort.
