Lisa Hayden is a contemporary artist painting with a focus on natural abstracts, including abstract landscapes, abstract florals and seascapes. A Massachusetts native, she studied painting at the University of Miami, where the vibrant colors of South Florida have combined with a life in New England to form a lasting influence on her art for 30 years.
A creative force in her work is a love of the ocean and nature; paintings often explore the intersection of human feelings and the natural world. An expression of both abstract concepts and landscapes through color, texture and motion is behind each piece of art.
The green of nature and the blue of the ocean is visible in many of Lisa's pieces. The textures and colors in nature inspire her throughout the changing seasons in New England. Ponds, meadows, mountains and forests intersect with the human experience and are expressed in many different ways in her abstracted landscapes.
With the category of acrylic paint, there are a variety of formats used to create the artwork, including soft and heavy body acrylics, fluid acrylics, paint markers, high flow acrylic, and acrylic ink. Each has its own way of expressing feeling through color and texture differences. Using a mix of brushes, palette knives, and tools to work with the various acrylics adds texture and detail to each painting.
All paintings are on gallery wrapped 1.5" canvas.
