Lisa is a native of Charleston, SC where she grew up on the water surrounded by beautiful landscapes, beaches and the historic charm of the city. These remain today the biggest inspirations of her art. Lisa has been painting as long as she can remember, taking classes in Charleston as a teen in both acrylic and watercolor under renowned painters such as Shirley Carroll, Patsy Tidwell, Steve Jordan and Virginia Fouche Bolton. After earning a degree in Advertising Design from the University of Maryland, Lisa worked as a Graphic Artist for 25 years and continues to freelance. Lately her focus has switched back to fine art. She illustrated a children’s book with watercolor paintings and has resumed art classes taking on the new challenge of oil painting under the Art League’s Ted Reed and through The Arlington Artist Alliance with Jane McElvany Coonce.
Lisa lives in Arlington with her husband and three children where she paints in her home studio. She and her husband spend time throughout the year in Charleston, and her canvasses often reflect Lowcountry scenes.
Lisa is happy to accept commissions in Watercolor, Acrylic and Oil.
