Self-taught rural painter Lisa Cain seizes the South using mixed media and earnest childhood memories.
Born and raised in Canton, Mississppi, the now League City, Texas-based folk artist introduces art lovers to her community, church life and generational connections with each paint stroke and textured detail.
Her relatable work — Bible Belt baptismal and church paintings to African-American farmers plowing fields and attending family picnics — places everyday farm folk like me at the center of the piece with bold colors and character.
