Lisa Houck works in watercolor, oil on wood, ceramics, mosaics, and etching. Each medium allows her to invent new ways to express her view of nature through color and pattern. Her artwork has been exhibited widely, and is in numerous public and private collections, including The Boston Athenaeum, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston Children's Hospital, Fidelity Investments, Hale and Dorr, Massachusetts General Hospital, four libraries in Broward County, Florida and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

"Lisa Houck's eye-popping watercolors and oils are flat and densely patterned, with the various sections appearing pieced together, like crazy quilts. Hers is a crowded, cacophonous landscape inhabited by flowers, fish, trees, numbers, raindrops, symbols, and dots like in aboriginal paintings, all competing for your attention." - Christine Temin, The Boston Globe
