ABOUT

BIO

Lisa McLinden is a full time contemporary artist with a portfolio of distinctive work in the areas of landscape, seascape, and botanical works. With a career that has centered on education and design, she has been mentored by well known artists in the fields of watercolour, acrylic, and print making, and has herself taught post secondary level courses in design, colour theory and composition. Lisa captures the interconnection between people and the natural world in her work with the use of a muted palette, metallic elements, and balanced composition. Her interpretive works on paper, canvas, and wood are held in private collections by art admirers and nature enthusiasts alike.

Lisa currently resides in Guelph, Ontario with her family and her days are spent working in her studio, The Brown Twig, with her dog, Luna, by her side.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Like many artists, painting is a visceral and intuitive experience for me, a reflection of my two greatest passions – art and nature. I’m fortunate to live in a part of the world that never fails to present a stunning array of inspiration. As each season unfolds, I’m presented with a bounty of colour, texture, movement, and emotion. My paintings are simply my interpretation of these beautifully imperfect elements and are created using various strokes, layering, and mediums. Many pieces include the subtle addition of metallic elements gold, copper, and silver, which enables me to create a balance between the muted, subtle colours I am drawn to and the reflective elements naturally present in our world. Much like my tendency towards quietly observing and reflecting upon the world around me, my work emerges from a desire to share these observations from a place of kindness, inquisitiveness, and wonder. It is my belief that we’re all connected by this remarkable planet we share, and it’s my hope that the beauty and gifts that have been bestowed upon us, are respectfully depicted in my work.
