About

Impressionistic artist Lisa Stamos was born in Cronulla NSW growing up on the beaches then later the rivers of the Hawkesbury, her love of nature especially water has always been with her, painting came later. Now Lisa is an award winning artist living in Glenwood Queensland.
Painting began in 2006 when a life-long sight condition changed her life's direction, now with time on her side pastels & acrylics became an everyday part of her life along with the animals she paints whom frequent her quiet bush studio & her artworks. Each painting begins with thought & planning until she gets to the canvas and allows for change, drawing freehand with brush or pencil & painting with large house brushes to extremely thin brushes she works through each work till happy with the balance of tone, detail, reality.& feeling.
Lisa’s innate enthusiasm for the natural world is entirely evident in her paintings, which have been acquired by collectors in Sydney, Queensland, ACT & WA, holding her first solo exhibition in 2007 & since worked on public commissions with The Fraser Coast Council creating murals & welcome to Glenwood signs & private commissions. Lisa has acquired many awards from 2006 to present & feels she is ready to tackle some national competitions in the near future.
