My name is Lisa Wright . I am an artist who wants to share her work. I have been drawing as long as I can remember and began studying art formally in the seventh grade when I painted my first still life. I continued studying, showing my work throughout high school.
The first public recognition of my work was in regional art shows in Ohio where I earned best in show and scholastic achievement awards throughout high school. My first commissions came from those exhibitions.
I continued my study of art in college and was a Studio Art major at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts where I earned my Bachelors in Fine Art with a minor in Art History and French. While in college, I studied in Paris during my junior year, taking classes at Ecole de Beaux Arts and Ecole de Louvre.
I have continued to work on commission throughout the years while also teaching in a homeschool program for the past thirteen years. I currently teach five levels of art including Drawing, Painting, and Advanced Art and three levels of French. I have a passion for traveling and love to produce work inspired by the locations I’ve been to. Some are pictured on this site. Above is on a hike with my daughters in Cinque Terra, Italy with Manerola in the background, which is featured in my gallery.
I have also illustrated a children’s book, Light for the Sacra Vellum, by Cathy Idowu which is available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
