Born and raised in Connecticut, Lisa studied painting and printmaking at the Art Institute of Boston and at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She has been showing her work in group exhibitions and solo shows since 1984 in the US, Canada, France, Greece, and India.
Lisa’s subject matter has a large range, from landscapes to still lifes and studies of people, to intimate observations of everyday objects. She seeks to simplify her images and in so doing brings forth a quiet sense of being. Whether in painting or printmaking, Lisa is inclined to focus on her subject and compose it down to a harmonious minimum. Drawing is fundamental to all aspects of her work.
After 27 years of living and working in different places, mostly abroad, Lisa and her family now call Jamestown, Rhode Island their permanent home. It is there that she and her husband have built her dream studio where she works full time.
