Welcome to my Studio Blog

Take a peek into my studio and See what inspires me to create my paintings and what’s been happening in my studio and on my travels.

I love to travel, see new places and meet new people. I love to create bold colourful paintings, many of them based on my wonderful travels.

Now at Galerie de la Rive

Thought I would share some of my exciting news with you all. Galerie de la Rive in Rockland, Ont. asked me to be a permanent artist at their gallery. I am quite honoured as there are many artists in Ottawa that are always looking for space to exhibit and they chose moi! I have a wall space and at the moment have 9 of my floral paintings on display. I thought they were a good choice for Spring. These paintings will be on display till mid June, when we rotate for new paintings.

We will also be having a big group exhibition the weekend of March 28th/29th. It looks like it will be a nice exhibition with lots of activities. There will be artists demontrations on the 28th, with lots more exciting activities. We basically hold 4 big group exhibitions a year plus some smaller ones in between. It’s a new gallery so they are still working out these events and details.

What’s nice is that I can remain exhibiting at Galerie de la Rive and also exhibit by work at other galleries. There are a few more that have answered me and will have some space this Fall. So things are moving for me and I am quite excited.

Yesterday, I met the director of the gallery and she is very nice. Then some other artist members came by and they were all very kind. I am very happy to belong to this group and also make some new friends. I have been finding my adjustment back in Ottawa, Canada a little difficult as I don’t know many people here. It’s also so nice to be with other artists and I missed that contact.

Wishing you all a great day, xoxo Lisa

Fantastic Lisa - congratulations on getting your work in the gallery! They make a wonderful show together. Understand how you feel about meeting like minded people - I too only feel 'at home' when I've hooked up with some arty types! By the way, Tia will be very impressed when I tell her that you have her photo in your studio!!
