Painter Nerissa Lea completed a Printmaking and Cinematography Degree from the South Australian School of Art in Adelaide in 1982. Her surrealistic and often dark works are unfinished narratives incorporating elements of still life, landscape and folklore.
Lea has held solo exhibitions in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. She was awarded the S.H. Ervin Gallery Portia Geach Portrait Prize in 2004. Her work is held in the collections of the Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane and several major regional galleries.
