    Lisa Lorenz


    Lisa Larivière Lorenz was born in Montreal, Canada where she studied graphic design and advertising.  She has lived abroad for over 20 years and has lived in Basel (CH), Seoul (KR), Copenhagen (DK) and Johannesburg (SA). She now resides in Flüh, Switzerland.  Lisa has traveled extensively around the world and many of her paintings are based on her travels. 
    Lisa uses a radiant palette to create her colourful paintings.  Her lively artwork features realistic subject matter that she stylizes with vibrant colour, bold lines and a fanciful decorative allure.  She works mainly from her imagination and her work is characterized by creative compositions, exaggerated perspectives and her strikingly effective use of colours and patterns.   In her artwork, you will also discover the interesting use of the cloisonnism technique where she outlines her design with a fine brush painting a bold contour emphasizing her artwork.  This gives her work a beautiful stained glass effect infusing a vibrant energy.   Her lively compositions are consistently delightful to look at and evoke a sense of happiness.
