Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that abstract artist Lisa Mishler has been named the gallery’s latest featured artist. Lisa will now be shown in and promoted in the gallery’s Artist Showcase.
Lisa Mishler is a prize-winning painter who lives in Tucson, Arizona. She studied photography and media arts in college and spent 20 years as an interior designer. While working full time she also found time for taking art classes and painting. After she retired she continued to develop her painting skills and became certiﬁed to teach at The Drawing Studio (TDS). Today she teaches “Abstract Painting” classes at TDS and for a variety of arts organizations in Arizona.
Lisa works mostly in acrylics creating abstract, landscape and portrait pieces. She has become more experimental in this work adding texture using state-of-the-art mediums and incorporating collage on the canvas. Recent mixed media work, while mostly acrylic based, includes watercolor, encaustic and even oil paint as part of her newly evolved experimental approach.
“I want to be known as a versatile artist as I delight in experimentation and discovery.” Said Lisa in a recent conversation. “I am inspired by everyday encounters – my family, my dogs, daily early morning walks through the desert. I bring these experiences to the studio and then I paint”. I’m always amazed by what appears on the canvas.”
Lisa is a signature member of the Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild (SAWG), a Signature member of Aqueous and an active member in the Southern Arizona Artist Guild (SAAG), Contemporary Artists of Southern Arizona (CASA), PaperWorks: the Sonoran Collective for Paper and Book Artists, Southern Arizona Wax Artists (SAZWAX) and the Tubac Center of the Arts. Lisa exhibits regularly with these organizations.
Lisa exhibits her work in Simon Gallery of Fine Art Located in Tucson, Arizona and Rain Crow Gallery in Tucson Arizona for her Encausti. Lisa’s art website is http://www.lisamishler.com
