BIO
Lisa Daria Kennedy grew up along the northeast edge of the Hockomock Swamp in Massachusetts.

Since 2009, she has committed to an on-going consecutive daily painting project. As a young adult cancer survivor, she discovered living is not just surviving. Each painting seeks to give a voice to the fiber of the
everyday.

Kennedy received a BA from Roger Williams University, and a BFA and MFA from Massachusetts College
of Art and Design. Currently she is the Design Editor for the literary publication, Mount Hope and an

Assistant Professor at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, MA.
