Lisa captures the sweeping landscapes of the American west with a focus on the places she loves best: the fields, coulees, eroded hills and roads of Eastern Washington and the lakes and rivers of Western Washington. Her deeply layered luminous oil paintings capture a profound love of the wide-open land. Her work is graphic and luminous.
One of her paintings, The Sun Sets on the Slope of the Horse Heaven Hills, was on exhibit in the American Embassy in Yemen for several years. Mountains at Dusk is in the collection of the Washington State Governor's Mansion in Olympia, Washington. In 2015 she was the Artist in Residence at Petrified Forest National Park and in 2017 she was the Artist in Residence at Grand Canyon - Parashant National Monument.
Her studio is in a forest on Samish Island looking out over a heron rookery and Alice and Padilla Bays.
She is represented by Smith & Vallee Gallery in Edison, Washington.
