A B O U T
Originally from Cornwall, Lisa has been painting for over 20 years and draws great inspiration from her travels. Her endeavours in the art world began to gain momentum after a move to Norway through local exhibitions and commissions. Three years of private one to one art tuition followed after the next move to Oman and on return to the UK, Lisa undertook an ‘Art Interpretation’ course at Gray’s School of Art which encouraged her to experiment and began to pave the way to her current style.
The spectacular scenery which surrounds Lisa on Royal Deeside bears a huge presence within her work, most notably the ethereal effect light possesses as it is cast upon landscapes and seascapes. Working in oils, Lisa focuses on the creation of dramatic skies and whimsical portrayals of mountains, lochs and the sea atop both anodised aluminium and fine linen board.
Lisa’s use of aluminium first began whilst at Gray’s School of Art and over the years she has honed the technique in order to draw the luminosity of the metal into her pieces, often re exposing areas of the aluminium by rubbing back layers to add depth and light. A similar effect is used on fine linen board, first adding layers of colour to her board then sanding back certain areas giving her work a unique style and finish.
