Artist Lisa Thomson is inspired to capture the beauty of nature on canvas


Lisa’s parents introduced her, from an early age, to appreciate the grandeur of nature.

Using primarily oils, Lisa strives to capture nature’s beauty on canvas, using the subtleties of light as a dominant theme. In her paintings, she tries to capture the essence of natural life – the grand vistas of the prairies, the power of the mountains, playful colours in gardens and the peacefulness of water.

She has been painting for more than 35 years and has studied under a number of artists. Over this time, she has worked with different media, explored various styles and experimented with different color palettes.

Photography is another of Lisa’s passions, and she often uses her camera to capture the scenes that she paints.

Lisa lives in Calgary and spends as much time as she can outdoors.  Her work can be seen on her website www.lisathomson.com.
