Lisa’s love of art began at a very early age. As a child she was always painting, drawing or crafting. Whether her tool of choice was a crayon, marker, pencil, or paintbrush, she was always experimenting with different materials. The joy she felt creating as a child continued throughout high school where she developed a portfolio and found abstract painting. Her desire to continue to learn and grow as an artist lead her to continuing her education taking classes in photography, design and illustration. After a brief stint in the marketing world, Lisa found her home as a professional wedding and lifestyle photographer honing in on her skills as a visual storyteller. After nearly 10 years of growing a successful small business she felt the need to explore the art world again and get back to her beloved roots as an abstract painter. Thus, Lisa Mathewson Fine Art was born. Lisa’s love of interiors, design, color, composition and expertise in visual aesthetics provide a unique perceptive to the world of abstracted art.
Lisa lives in Wauwatosa, WI with her husband and 3 children. They are often seen enjoying the outdoors, frequenting sporting events and living life to it’s fullest.
I always want my work to be beautiful, it should evoke happiness, a sense of calm or to serve as a reminder of life’s goodness. Our lives are not perfect and I never strive to create the perfect painting. I strive to create a perfectly imperfect balance of colors, shapes and lines with an unexpected twist, though unpredictable, somehow marries the elements to produce a snapshot of life.
My work is like a living journal of my life. From my travels, love of the outdoors & nature, interiors and everyday struggles we all experience, I hope you find peace and happiness when viewing my work.
