Lisa Ridgers was born on the South Coast of England in September of 1968. She moved to America when she was 22 in the early 90’s. She spent the majority of her earlier time in the USA, in Arizona, where she learned to paint and fell in love with the life of being a creator. The last ten years have been very transitional; living between the UK, Spain, and her home in Wisconsin, USA. Lisa has been a full time professional artist since 2002.
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 and now finds a harmonious balance brought about by her new surroundings in the countryside. She works predominantly with acrylics accented with a range of mediums and techniques that in their contradiction create a complimentary, uniquely fresh look.
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 around the world. The subject matter of her paintings range from her bold
minimalist representations to vivid and earthy abstracted landscapes.
While continuing to work with all of her existing collectors and galleries in the USA, Ridgers is very excited to have her work more widely available in the UK and Europe.
“My passion for travel and the diversity found in nature and different cultures inspire me.”
“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”.
Lisa originally came to the U.S. as an “English nanny” with a family that had six children!
