Lisa MacDonald, Artist

A Short Bio

I started painting in 2010 after finishing a 42-week on-line art certificate course with Cindy Wider, at Being of a somewhat compulsive, obsessive nature, art quickly became the one thing I wanted to do every day, all day to the exclusion of almost everything else. Needless to say this is a bit, well, obsessive, and that there are other aspects to life that need looking after.

It took some time but I finally found a balance where I would focus on art 3 out of 5 afternoons. If time permitted the weekends were a good time to return to my first love which was sketching.

In order to have ideas for art it became important to live my life to gain experiences, get out into nature to appreciate the diversity and to inspire the creative spirit. Now I consider an outing with the camera as important as setting up to paint on canvas.
