Barbara Petit Lisy


Barbara Petit Lisy is a painter, illustrator and author. Since childhood, writing and painting have been her preferred means of expressing herself freely and satisfying her quest for meaning and beauty. Having chosen to devote her life to art and thought, she trained in painting, literature, publishing and cultural journalism.

These cross-disciplinary skills have led her to write regularly for the magazine "Pratique des Arts". Solicited by the Mango publishing house for her pedagogy, she wrote "Le Pastel facile" and "L'acrylique facile". Committed, she illustrates for LGBT people "Ton Album arc-en-ciel", the first birth album for homoparental families available in France. Recently, a more intimate illustrated story, "Le Voyage d'Albina", gives voice to a strong and independent woman.

A member of the Taylor Foundation, the Salon d'automne, the Association des amis d'André Derain, the Art Can org and the Association des peintres de plein air, she is the recipient of numerous painting prizes (Marin prize, figurative painting prize, etc.). Invited in residence in Russia, Belarus, Spain and Quebec, she regularly exhibits in France, Japan, China and Russia.
