Colorfully vibrant and rich with emotion, Lisa Bohnwagner’s animal paintings serve as reflections of ourselves and ask us to reconnect with our fundamental "human" nature. Growing up in the woods and marshes of Essex, MA Lisa has always expressed a deep empathy with animals. After receiving her bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Ringling School of Art & Design, her work in animal rescue added artistic insight into the best and worst of what people can do for animals and each other. Ultimately, Lisa returns us to the innate sense of joy and caring that lie within the deepest parts of our living souls.

“There are artists who like to focus on the mundane to make it important, because that's where a lot of our lives are lived. Similarly, I want to focus on animals to make them important. To make people stop and look and think. To make them See. I use color to make my animals extra-ordinary. Layers of complementary colors vibrate against each other, giving life to the painting and creating a sense of other-worldliness, while the textured canvas brings back a recognizable and intimate feeling of furriness.

I don't want to humanize animals.
I want my paintings of animals to humanize people.”
