LISA JAMES

“For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for art. Painting brings me a sense of fulfillment and happiness and being able to express myself by being creative brings inner peace and contentment. I paint intuitively and take my inspiration from the power in nature. I’m in awe of a beautiful sunrise, the strength of an ocean wave or the power and movement of a stunning cloud formation. Even a tiny vulnerable flower has the power and strength to re-root itself and grows strong again. I try to capture the same strength and power in my painting and use fluid and acrylic paint and brush strokes

to evoke a feeling of movement and energy. I also like to blend the paint to create a soft dreamy feel to build harmony and balance as the layers develop, allowing the viewer to feel a sense of peace and calm.

Each new piece of work can often bring a sense of vulnerability and rawness  – like getting to know someone for the first time. The titles for my work often evolve as I paint and connect with the piece as it develops a personality of its own”.
