Lisa Marie Kindley
Inspired by the frescoes and fairytales of old Europe, Lisa began creating her painted canvas dreamscapes in 2010. Both romantic and ethereal in feeling, they evolved naturally from her prior years of experience, beginning in 2000, painting murals and decorative finishes for homes. Working mostly large-scale, her paintings become a "glimpse of serenity" that invites the viewer to wander into a timeless world...quiet and lushly overgrown, like a forgotten garden, or a place yet to be discovered.
Lisa studied illustration at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon. But, her enchanted dreamscape imagery, and soft antiquing effects have developed while working as a decorative artist in Northern California. Travel has also been an inspiration, with journeys over the years to Europe, the British Isles, and Japan.
Her paintings show at galleries and juried art fairs and festivals in California and the Southwest.
