Lisa Nielsen
Chapel Hill, North Carolina

There’s a certain innocent joy that comes through in Lisa Nielsen’s artwork. She finds beauty in the everyday and often ordinary, whether it’s painting a pretty girl in the garden or spending time with her daughter at Chipotle - and let’s face it, what isn’t beautiful about a burrito bowl? Lisa likes to say she captures moments in the journey of life. What we see in her art is all part of her life philosophy: to be still, to breathe, to exhaust the small moment.

Hello Lisa…I just recently bought your painting "Still." I love the colors you developed in the oil and the the interplay between what's real and what's abstract. In your bio I noticed you work at the Durham VA…I'm a disabled veteran and I get my medical care from the same facility…I also live in Chapel Hill…small world!!! Thank You!

Hey Frank Thank you for your kind words about my art. It means a lot to an artist that someone enjoys your efforts. Truly. I have been reading that there is a trend for paintings that are gallery wrapped that people can just hang up on the walls. I think the simplicity of that makes a lot of sense and I can see why that is attractive to buyers. One thing about the way that I work is I might paint a piece a couple of times before I'm happy with it so tossing gallery wrapped canvases would a little tough to stomach! I did look online and saw something called Clearmont Zig Zag picture hangers. It says they are not made to hold a lot of weight but the little blue lady is less than a pound. Let me know what you think. Thanks again! Lisa

Hi Lisa- I really like your work and noticed that "Nude in Blue" was done on canvas board. Now I would want to hang it on a wall- not a frame for display. Is it possible for you to attach one of those metal devices (dont know the name) where I could just use a nail in the wall and hang the painting on the clip? Let me know- Thanks, Frank
