Enjoying the outdoors brings images to mind that are parallels between nature and our experiences. It’s amazing how many human situations are echoed through plants and animals! I record these images and share them as paintings. Acrylic is my favorite tool, but ink, watercolor and colored pencil play supporting roles.






Lisa Gibson studied design by squinting at the values and patterns in many locations throughout her life. Montana has been her classroom for well over half of it. She explored creativity through photography, quilt making and pine needle basketry before learning that painting combines all of the elements she loves – color and design with a tactile, hands-on approach. Besides, she is a lousy seamstress. Her home is shared in Lincoln, MT with her family and spoiled house rabbit.
