LIZZY – Creative Soul. Traveler. Believer. Soul Surfer. Artist.
Lisa Marque was born in France but grew up in lovely Portugal, where she can surf all day long. She is a great artist and knows how to draw beautiful “Soul & Surf” illustration.
“The ocean teaches me, and what I draw is a consequence of what I learned from it.
Drawing is my way of sharing my truths.”
We wanted to know some random questions everyone asks for. So we queried and we really, really like how she’s thinking.
Olá Lizzy, are you excited what’s coming up now? The last question is the best one maybe! But the 7th is our favourite one. And #4 we always wanted to know about you – haha.
1. Do you lick or bite ice cream?
I lick in the first second, than i get bored and bite!
2. Life philosophy?
Life is too short to be small.
3. Your favorite color?
Well… black. White and pine green.
4. Burp confetti or fart glitter?
ahaha Burp confetti! With coca cola would be an eternal party!
5. What do you like to draw the most?
At the moment surfer girls in super feminine movements.
6. What is one of the things you would put on your “bucket” list?
Help taking care of the orangoutans in Borneo.
7. How does your perfect bread look like? (in details please)
ahah! I’m portuguese, so I LOVE bread! And for me the most important thing is the bread, it has to be a good one. So I start with a rustic firewood bread, slices of avocado, a strong cheese, like goat cheese or brie, cherry tomato, and some leaves of arugula! It would be enough! I could also add caramelized onion if i am really inspired!
8. What is your favorite summer activity?
Surf in swimsuit! I love it! It’s my favorite thing in the world! I love to feel the sparkling water on my skin when i duck dive. It’s so perfect! When it’s warm I definitely have to be at the beach.
9. Sunrise or sunset?
Humm. Sunrise, as I dont see it so often it gets more special! Sunsets are amazing everyday in Portugal.
10. If you could paint anything what would you paint?
Thats a hard one! I would repaint the humanity without plastics.
11. Whats your favorite spotify list?
“Lizzy Peaaaaace” its a mix of indie and rock music.
12. Which superpowers would you like to have?
Fly, heal and give life with my hands.
13. Where do you see yourself in 12 years?
ahahah! Maybe dead? Maybe alive? I don’t know! I couldn´t tell you where I see myself in 3 months.. My choices are pretty unpredictable. I can easily switch it fast. I do what feels right at the moment, with no blames or regrets. Im only committed with myself, and my plans are always changing in the short run, I just need to know where to go with my next step.
14. Surfing or drawing pictures?
Surfing first, drawing after. I can’t draw if I’m not in peace with myself, and it is the ocean who gives me the serenity I need to get inspired.
15. Why don‘t the hairs on your arms get split ends?
They would have, if I decided to grow them a bit longer!
