Painting on metal has a long history, with Rembrandt, El Greco, and Brueghel all using copper in place of Canvas. Now Lisa Brundrett is carrying the tradition forwards with her fresh studies of local landscapes and seascapes painted on aluminium and fine linen board.
My paintings have been influenced by the many places I’ve lived. I was born and raised near St Ives, Cornwall, where the coastline and light is spectacular.
My husband and I embarked on a journey round the world before moving to Drumoak, where we started a family. We lived in Stavanger, Norway, for a couple of years and that’s where I first began to paint seriously. The fjords and mountainous landscapes proved endlessly inspiring.
The next stop on our adventure was Muscat, Oman - a stark contrast to Norway - where I received private one to one art tuition for three years, whilst also exhibiting locally.
On my return to Deeside in 2011, I took the opportunity to study at Gray’s School of Art where I developed my current style. I'm inspired by the effect of light cast upon poignant landscapes, working predominantly in oils.
