Lisa’s Artist Statement:

“My watercolors and drawings endeavor to tell a visual story that the viewer hasn’t seen before. I am fascinated with the details and patterns in nature and the way light interplays with shadow and I work to emphasize that in my paintings and drawings. I look for unique points of view from which to observe my subjects. One of the things I love most about creating my paintings and drawings is turning an empty page into an image of a small part of nature, a person, or a scene to share with my audience. I want my work to call attention to the beauty in the natural world and the forgotten or overlooked in the human world.”
