Our Artists - Lisa Gibson

Being in nature brings up analogies to life. When I see a doe and fawn tucked under a conifer, I'm reminded of our need for close bonds and delight in coziness. Flowers swaying in the breeze during a thunderstorm reminds me to dance no matter the conditions of life's weather. These connections between our inner and outer worlds are reflected in my paintings.

Acrylic is my favorite medium with its wide range of voices. Whispery washes to booming brushstrokes can be expressed all in one painting. Ink, watercolor and colored pencil at times play supporting roles. I frequently sketch while enjoying the outdoors, but the majority of my painting is in the studio.
