Art on the business card is currently on display in New York City at Six Summit Gallery.
L.M.Sanders began working in oils during the pandemic of 2020. She has been a professional artist for 20 years working mainly in acrylics. She became known for a loose style working mainly in figures wearing dresses and almost always seen walking away from the viewer. That style and composition resonated with collectors and during 2000 – 2007 she sold about 800 of them. She has sold over 1,000 paintings to date.
She went back to school and received her master’s in organizational psychology in 2015 and from 2010- 2020 she worked as a Human Resources Professional serving several companies.
In 2012 she did start to exhibit her work again and you could find her work in local restaurants and shops.
However, it was not until the pandemic hit in 2020 that she decided to make a change and return to her love of art. She chose to pursue formal training again. She had formal training in high school. She went through the Norwich Free Academy art program and majored in art. So, she returned to her roots if you will, in 2020 and took plein air, oil painting, landscape, and figure art lessons. Taking lessons with local established artists, Hollis Dunlap, Jack Montmeat are two of them.
She also took a bold color painting course online in 2020 and that has influenced her bold painting collection.
In 2021, she will be taking more art lessons to continue to improve her artwork! Her current work is a combination of all those lessons and years of self-study! Lisa also works for the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern CT and you can view her bio about her role here.
