Lisa Daria Kennedy

Lisa Daria Kennedy grew up along the northeast edge of the Hockomock Swamp in Massachusetts. She received her BA from Roger Williams University in Graphic Design (1995), her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Illustration (1998), and her MFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2D (2013). Since 2009, Kennedy has been committed to an on-going daily painting project in which she creates one small acrylic painting a day. As a young adult cancer survivor, she discovered living is not just surviving. The small, intimate paintings of everyday subjects seek to give a voice to the fiber of the everyday. Kennedy has worked as a product and surface designer in the international giftware industry. She has recently been appointed Design Editor for the literary publication, Mount Hope and is an Adjunct Professor at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, MA.

We love the idea of marking "each day with a painting." Lisa has been painting for more than 1300 days, and this piece captures a few moments of her long-term project. Take a look at the product story to see why painting is so important to this artist, then let us know what you think about After But Before.
