Lisa’s artistry is characterized by spontaneous, dynamic paint strokes and careful attention to the ways in which colors interact to elicit strong emotional responses. Each work begins with a mark on a blank canvas and the wonder of where that simple gesture will take her and the viewer.
She studied other artists’ approaches to canvas over the century as a student of Art History at Old Dominion University. Abstract expressionists Elaine and Willem de Kooning, Clyfford Still, and Mark Rothko have a particular influence on her work. Jazz and new forms of music influenced the abstract impressionists. Lisa is especially fond of this quote by de Kooning: “Miles Davis bends the notes. He doesn’t play them, he bends them. I bend the paint.” To evoke emotion, Lisa bends the paint, as well.
Lisa has opened Art Box 137 on King Street in Saint Augustine with her business partner and fellow artist, Laura O’Neal. Together, they have amassed a diverse group of artists and artisans, and strive to present a wide range of styles and mediums.
