Lisa Morgan was born in Te Puke, New Zealand, and now lives and works in Sunshine Beach, Australia.
Lisa’s paintings are a study of beauty and colour, a study of the light and vibrancy of her surroundings where she currently lives on the Sunshine Coast.
“My art reflects ‘my’ real and ‘my’ imagined - the shapes, forms and textures that contribute to the world I inhabit. I use a unique vocabulary of symbols, marks and shapes to bring to the canvas combinations of colour, space and time. In order to interpret the subject of landscape in my own way I push the boundaries by dismissing technique in favour of making my own personal mark. My wish is that my art will be seen as a series of experiential landscapes where the viewer steps outside the confined realms of what they see and begin to feel what they might see when looking into the negative spaces of nature”
As the daughter of two talented artists, Lisa feels that her exposure to art as a child and attending many workshops over the years “has worked brilliantly in enabling [her] to find [her] own feet as an artist without the confines of formatted learning.”
