Artist Biography

M. Lisa Ford was born, raised and resides in the United States. Soon after receiving her BS in Art Education from Pennsylvania State University, Lisa began her 31 year teaching career in a Philadelphia suburb top-ranked school district in Pennsylvania. During this time she earned an MA in Art Education at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, an MA in Theatre at Villanova University, and studied painting extensively at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Lisa performs and studies, ballet, flamenco and tango in various schools, theaters and studios. Now devoting most of her time to painting and travel, her interdisciplinary approach to life is evident in her work.

Ms. Ford’s paintings capture the beauty and essence of persons, places and things. Sometimes this plays out as more representational, other times more abstract. A blending of abstraction and realism, Lisa’s paintings elicit a “vibe,” an emotional response to the atmosphere of her subject. For the past few years M. Lisa Ford has been visiting, painting and exhibiting in France. In December/January 2020 she exhibited in the “Petite Formats” exhibition at Art et Miss In Paris. Ford’s painting ”Curtain Call” was recently excepted to the 2020 Salon d’Automne International Exposition in Paris for October which went virtual January 5, 2021.

Artist Statement

When I paint, my intention is to capture the beauty and essence of a person, place or thing. A blending of abstraction and realism, I respond emotionally to space, color, shape, line and light. On-site works in watercolor sometimes serve as inspiration in the studio for larger more conceptual pieces. The small scale watercolors capture the essence on site spontaneously. Using all my senses I respond to the light, sound, feel, and smell. I approach plein air oils in the same manner where an abstract quality of color, shape, and line create the space. An interdisciplinary merging of various art forms and cultures is present in my painting. The plein air landscapes capture the atmosphere, season and time of day using a painterly technique. These paintings may also serve for larger studio works where sometimes separate and different views or atmospheres are hard-edgily merged as one, creating a blend of painterly representation and abstraction. My approach to other subject matter is interdisciplinary and multicultural, using various art disciplines and cultures as inspiration in evoking their essence and spirit.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Audrey Kriss Berkowitz has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist and she will now be promoted by the gallery for the next 14 days in the gallery’s Artist Showcase.

Audrey is an award-winning photographer based in Wilmington, North Carolina, USA. Audrey was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 16th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

Audrey’s Artist Showcase feature will be promoted to over 350+ major news outlets, with inclusion on Google News & Bing News. In addition, the gallery will also be featuring and promoting her artwork in the gallery’s various social media networks for further exposure.

Below are Audrey’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

Audrey Kriss Berkowitz was born in Brooklyn, NY. She moved to Montgomery County, MD in 1987 and raised a family while having a successful banking career and returning to college. After the tragic death of her son in 2016, Audrey turned to photography to cope with her grief. When she relocated to the Wilmington, NC beach area and refocused her energy on what was important to her, she realized the beauty of nature brought her peace and serenity. She enrolled at the Cameron Art Museum for a few basic photography courses but is basically self-taught.

As a fine art photographer in the Wilmington, NC area, she has participated in juried art shows in North Carolina and throughout the United States. These shows include the Leland Art League Juried Exhibition, Wilmington Art Association Spring Online Juried Show, the Image ’19 show sponsored by Art in Bloom and Art Works, Silver Arts (as a ribbon winner), in addition to shows at Wilmington and Leland establishments. She has also been included in the Naples Art Association International Juried Show, the 311 Gallery in Raleigh and restaurant art exhibitions in Maryland.

Light, Space and Time Gallery has awarded Audrey recognition in several recent shows including the 10th Anniversary, Seascapes and Created in Isolation with Honorable Mention, Special Recognition and several place awards. Lunabelle Gift Shop and Katie's Frame in Leland carry Audrey's work in addition to Art Exposure in Hampstead. Her specialties are landscape and food photography.

Audrey often uses an artistic spin to her work in addition to the realistic capture of nature seen in her work. Audrey is a member of the Wilmington Art Association and Leland Art League.

Artist Statement

In 2017, I moved to Wilmington, NC to begin a new life after the death of my son. Photography afforded me the ability to look beyond my pain and see the beauty around me. North Carolina's beautiful landscapes gave me peace and serenity that was lacking in my life, and I wanted to transmit these feelings in my work. As a photographer, I feel I am a witness to the Earth's beauty and use my lens to capture the story in front of me.

Photography not only relays an image but also should leave the viewer with feelings. Landscape photography will often inspire feelings of awe, peace, serenity while portrait or street photography can convey a story and make us wonder about the lives of the individual in the photo. I enjoy challenges and although much of my work involves landscape photography, I have branched out and challenged myself with food photography and candid portraits or as I like to say "people photos" which give you some glimpse of the story behind the face.

Our art competition for September was the 5th Annual “SeaScapes” and 2D and 3D artists (including photography) from around the world were called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion into the Gallery’s October 2015 online group art exhibition.  The “SeaScapes” theme was considered to be any art with the subjects being scenes of coastal living, any ocean activities, seaside vistas and any related seashore subjects for inclusion in this art exhibition. 

The Guest Judge for this competition is Mallory Whitfield.  She began her journey as a creative entrepreneur in 2004, selling her handmade creations at local craft shows. She has written an e-book about how to make money at craft shows from what she learned during 10+ years of selling at craft shows. Mallory has been blogging at Miss Malaprop since 2006. She offers creative strategy & coaching sessions for "solopreneurs" and indie business owners on topics including blogging, SEO (search engine optimization), WordPress, affiliate marketing, social media marketing (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Pinterest), email marketing and more.  www.missmalaprop.com

Here are Mallory's thoughts on the entries, “It was hard to pick a winner, as there was such a diverse range of artistic styles. But it was so much fun to look through the submissions and see how differently each artist interpreted the theme of SeaScapes. The theme really resonated with me -- I grew up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and I always feel at home when I'm near the water. All of the entries were beautiful representations of the sea. The participants should all feel very proud of their work!”

This art competition and the submission process and competition for the artists began in August 2015 and concluded on September 26, 2015. The gallery received 419 entries from 18 different countries from around the world, including Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Niue, Philippines, Portugal, Russia, Saint Maarten, Scotland,  Sweden, Netherlands, United Kingdom and Wales.  In addition, the gallery received entries from 27 different states.

Due to the volume of entries, the gallery felt that it was necessary to create two (2) media categories.  The media categories are Painting & Other and Photography & Digital. In addition, for this particular competition, we have an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the ten (10) best entries from the 2 media categories.

We also included Special Merit awards and Special Recognition awards for outstanding art this month. The artists in either of these groups could have easily been included in the upper tier of our winners, as their art was exceptional.
