Lisa is an an established painter based in Otorohanga.
She uses nature as a reference point and inspiration, to produce beautiful and stunning pieces of art. Lisa is constantly striving to find joy and happiness in her life with her family, as she passionately and diligently creates her unique works.
Her goal is always to live in the moment where her passion for her craft and her ability and skill level combine to take her consciousness away from the normality of everyday life. This is balanced with the vulnerability that one feels when their soul is on display for all to see. Lisa uses the promise and excitement of the raw and unpolished to push her own limits as well as the work of other artists. Lisa’s art is an opportunity to see the natural world through her eyes, where the beauty of the rock out shines that of the diamond.
Nau mai haere mai ki te whare Karamaha.
The house of many colours.
Ko Tainui te waka
Ko Ngati Maniapoto te iwi
Nga tangata mahi toi
