Artist Statement


I have been painting landscape for most of my career. The scenes that preoccupy me are places that I know and care about intimately, that have become part of the texture of my everyday consciousness.  Not only the views through my window; also walks taken, roads driven. My painting builds in such increments, one stage at a time, forward and backward, over and under, simple and complex, mundane and mythic.  I work intuitively, open to change, accident and transformation.  An evolving painting registers the subtle permutations of its atmosphere. And always there is a longing – to know these places, to paint them, to inhabit them, and then step outside.  My paintings are windows into places of possibility, desire and yearning.

(P.S. Check out the Chandelier Paintings on her site.When I first met Lisa she was in the midst of working on that series. I can't look at a chandelier to this day without thinking of those paintings. It's good thing:)!)
