Art has been a part of Lisa's life since she was a child growing up in Northeastern Pennsylvania. She loved to draw and nurtured that spirit by sharing her drawings with family and friends. A classically trained artist, she earned degrees in fine art and art education at Keystone College and Kutztown University.
Although her studio experience focused on oil painting, she discovered the pastel medium years later and has made this her medium of choice for her current work. She continues to find inspiration for her work through travel and the simple things that exist in everyday life.
An award winning artist, she is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America and holds signature memberships in the Connecticut Pastel Society, the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod, and the Pastel Society of New Jersey. She is a member of the Salmagundi Club of New York and The American Artists Professional League. Her work is held in private and corporate collections and has been shown in local and national juried exhibitions as well as non-juried invitational shows.
Her work is represented by the Butternut Gallery in Montrose, PA.
