Lisa Manes-James
Visalia, California

Based in California’s Central Valley, Lisa Manes-James is a retired art teacher whose work is inspired by her physical, sensory, and emotional connections to natural environments. Her non-objective paintings explore the essence of nature through color, organic shapes, and varied textures. Lisa works intuitively with brushes and tools, adding and removing paint according to her instincts. She paints in oil, a medium she finds to be sensuous and rich. For the artist, the experience of painting is a metaphor for the internal and external forces that shape the soul. Her ultimate intention is to cultivate an awareness of the relationship between the natural world and human emotions, experiences, and existence.

We recently bought a large (48"x48") painting from this artist on ugallery, and we love it!! It's going to be an amazing statement piece on the wall in our living room. The colors are vibrant, and the textures of the painting are interesting too. Ugallery was easy to work with as well, and the painting arrived pretty quickly & packaged very well. I only wish we'd waiting for this Valentine's Day sale - but you never know, maybe it would have sold in the meantime, so I'm glad we didn't miss out on it.
