A native Californian who has lived on both coasts, Lisa currently lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area. She received her degree in painting in 1990 from University of California Santa Cruz, and has been painting for twenty-five years with a variety of mediums. She has raised and educated two children while maintaining a thriving studio practice, and is currently working her way though a certificate program in Technical Communication and Editing. Her passions and enthusiasms include art, family, writing, being outside, processes and problem solving, reading, travel, and really good food and conversation. Lisa exhibits her work nationally and is currently represented by Hang Art in San Francisco.
Lisa’s paintings explore themes of complexity, memory, and sensory experience through the subject of landscape. Her paintings challenge traditional ideas about time and place, and re-negotiate the concept of landscape to accommodate a broad definition that comprises multiple moments, multiple views, and abstracted perceptions. Her working methods are simple, yet meticulous, and utilize mediums that allow for transparency and layering to communicate spacial and temporal ideas. The result is a series of paintings that is rich, subtle, and defined by a sense of floating space.
