The human figure, unfiltered, true. No clothing, no need for costume or facade in this one. Imperfect but perfectly beautiful.  This and a quiet, private space in time. This is when figure work really speaks to me. I believe I've conveyed some of that in this one.

Getting to Know Lisa

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.
