About

Born in Cronulla, NSW growing up on the beaches & later the rivers of the Hawkesbury Lisa’s love of nature especially water has always been with her, painting came later.
Now Lisa is an award winning artist who lives in Glenwood Queensland. She began experimenting with painting in 2006 when a life-long sight condition changed her direction in life, now with time on her side pastels & more recently acrylics plus other mediums from time to time are an everyday part of her life along with the animals she paints that frequent her quiet bush studio, in fact she has a rapport with all animals spending more time with them than people. Lisa’s innate enthusiasm for the natural world is entirely evident in her paintings, which have been acquired by collectors in Sydney, Queensland & WA. She held her first solo exhibition in 2007 & has since worked on public commissions with The Fraser Coast Council creating murals & welcome to Glenwood signs, she has acquired many awards locally from her first year of painting to present with her win in the open section of The Mary Valley Art Festival, Imbil, QLD being her biggest success to date & feels she is ready to tackle some national competitions in the near future.
Painting by observation & from the heart Lisa creates works with an eye for detail, colour & tone allowing her natural style to produce realistic/ impressionistic artworks which will bring the wow factor to any wall, only the highest quality materials have been used, a card of authenticity, history & painting care come with each artwork & a donation of ten percent from the sale of each work will be donated to various organisations such as RSPCA, Humane Society & Ecocean whom do an excellent job in helping our great animals & their habitats as Lisa feels she needs to give back to the ones who have given her so much.
Be kind to all

Influences

All animals & their emotional ability to connect with us including their individual personality traits inspires me to paint & capture their essence, some love or live in water & the ocean which also captures my creative eye due to the way it makes me feel...Alive.
The small details attract me the most in any subject as I feel this is the most important part of life.
