Hello and welcome. I’m happy you’re here!
As you probably know, my name is Lisa McLinden and I’m a contemporary artist with a portfolio of work in the area of landscape, seascape and figurative paintings. With a career that has centered on education and design, I’ve been so fortunate to be mentored by many well known artists in the fields of watercolour, acrylic, and print making, and have had the distinct pleasure of teaching post secondary level courses in design, colour theory and composition. With every painting, I attempt to capture the delicate interconnection between people and our natural world with the use of a muted, minimalistic palette and understated composition. My highly interpretive and expressive work on paper, canvas, and wood is held in private collections by art admirers and nature enthusiasts alike.
I currently divide my time between my home province of Ontario and life by the sea in Newfoundland. A constant source of love and my greatest muse, nature is a continual theme throughout my work and representative of the lush landscapes of Ontario and rugged, panoramic vistas of the East Coast. In addition to painting, I teach and mentor emerging artists in the fundamentals of painting, strategies for running a successful art business, and social media applications. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss mentoring availability.
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, it offers up 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 textural and metallic elements which enables me to create depth and interest while working with the muted, subtle colours I am drawn to.
The shores of Atlantic Canada continue to be a great source of inspiration, as the landscapes are as diverse as its people. Much like my tendency towards quietly observing and reflecting upon the world around me, my work emerges from a desire to share my 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.
In my spare time, photography and music bring me the greatest joy, as does spending time with family and friends.
