the Synergy of Art & Design
“Best known by the Washington, DC Metro community of Design for her diversity as an artist, creator and problem solver, Lisa has touched a worldwide audience through public exhibitions, a large, published body of commercial work, charitable projects and private commissions. Her studio is a whirlwind of media in motion. Set up for acrylic painting, oil painting, encaustic, plaster, gilding, printmaking, mirror, framing and more, it is evidence of a passion for discovery.” – Home & Design Magazine, 2017

The magic of color, texture and surface has mesmerized and intoxicated me for as long as I can remember. To this day, materials are often my inspiration. I want to get to know them and see what we can do.
At the age of 3, I created my first wall mural with my mother’s lipstick. Since my mother was a teaching artist, I had access to all kinds of wondrous things. The vivid inks and rich charcoals beckoned. Every stroke of color was pure joy. Canvas and paper too confining, I painted the walls all over the house. Eventually this abandon was tamed into mural and canvas art.
I work primarily with the Washington, DC design community and private clients around the country, creating site-specific work for residential, commercial, health care & hospitality projects. This has developed into an unusually varied body of work in a multitude of styles and mediums. This work includes fine and decorative artistry, mural painting, hand-painted wall coverings, gilding and Verre’ Eglomise.
I have been honored with several awards from the American Society of Interior Designers’ DC chapter as well as being a three-time winner of the Designer’s Choice Award from Home & Design Magazine readers. In 2018 my work was included in a six-month museum exhibition at the Hillwood Museum in Washington, DC. I exhibit through galleries, showrooms and design stores around the country. Ever grateful to be share my love affair with all things paint and surface, I recently launched a Print on Demand Gallery site so art lovers can create their perfect piece. I most enjoy working with Collectors to create pieces that are personal and specific to their desires.
