Lisa Ridgers was born on the South Coast of England in September of 1968. She moved to America when she was 22 and has worked as a full-time, professional artist since 2000. She began her art career in Arizona, where she learned to paint before moving to the Midwest where she now lives and works in Dayton, Ohio.
Since her early days studying with two prominent contemporary artists (R.Clearwater and S Jacobs), she has continued on as a, primarily, self- taught artist; developing her own unique methods and process for her paintings. She still finds that the rich colours and drastic scenery of the desert influence her work along with the harmonious balance brought about by her love for the ocean and the palette of the countryside. She works predominantly with Golden professional grade acrylics accented with a range of mediums, use of unconventional tools; that in their contradiction create a complimentary, unique look. Always seeking growth, Lisa enjoys experimenting with new techniques, technology and mediums which in turn keeps her work fresh and constantly evolving.
Lisa’s multi- media works have been described as a fusion of organic palette, natural elements and inner meditations. Her art can be found in both corporate and private collections throughout the world. The subject matter of her paintings range from her expressive non-subjective works, contemporary figurative representations and ethereal abstracted landscapes.
“My passion for the diversity found in nature, combined with a personal quest for balance and serenity, inspires my work …... My goal is to fuse these elements together with a contemporary twist so that the viewer is invited to take a journey that is not only a visual experience, but also an intimate, emotional contemplation”.
