NEWS FROM THE STUDIO – 2020

Meet The Artist

Lisa and her husband live in Lyme, CT with their four long-haired Chihuahua’s. They also own four Nigerian goats, 9 chickens and a bunny that reside in their mini petting zoo. Lisa’s art studio is located just behind the petting zoo and she can step out of her studio and paint them or the gorgeous pine forest that surrounds them or take a stroll down to the cove to paint the wildlife and peaceful water scenes.

Lisa has recently started using a bold palette and you’ll notice a shift in her work in 2020 using brighter, more bold colors in her portraits.  She has also begun Plein Air painting lessons.  She is a member of the Lyme Art Association and will be joining some of their paint outs soon.  She is also a member of the Madison Art Society and will be joining their paint outs as well.
