Lisa Pentz

Lisa has been passionate about art for as long as she can remember. She grew up in Vienna, Virginia where she was highly encouraged by her family and teachers in her art endeavors. She started painting in oil in 2002 and has poured herself into learning as much as possible about all aspects of creating a good painting.

Lisa loves the fluidity and sculptural qualities oil paint offers. She enjoys painting a variety of subjects - still lifes, landscapes, animals and figurative works. She strives to bring out the play of light and color on the subject she is painting and hopes to share her passion and to create a meaningful emotion response for others through her work. Lisa has won several awards for her artwork over the years and has studied with many accomplished artists.
