Artist Reception April 21 2011
Lisa Cederberg was born in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania and has lived in California, Virginia, Oregon, Stockholm, Sweden and currently lives in Neptune Beach, Florida.
Lisa has traveled to many places throughout the world in search of inspiration, including much of the USA, Italy, France, Croatia, Scotland, England, France, Denmark, Germany, Sweden, the Dominican Republic, and the Yucatan Peninsula.
Lisa has had many exhibitions in Portland, Oregon, Charlotte, North Carolina, Stockholm, Sweden and Jacksonville Beaches area and has received awards for her figurative and rustic paintings. Lisa’s fine art prints have been sold at many locations across the USA.
Lisa has been painting for thirty years, is primarily self-taught and has developed her own unique style of expression. Her favorite influences are Andrew Wyeth, Winslow Homer, Mary Cassatt, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Lisa paints primarily in watercolor and pastel. Her style is representational, with subject matters ranging from children, tribal people groups, landscapes and rustic themes. Lisa’s desire is to use her talent to reflect God’s creation in her paintings.
“I want to capture the joy, innocence and beauty in common and often overlooked things,
expressing significant moments and giving the viewer a place of rest to step into.
I paint people with much the same intent. I love children as a source of inspiration.
Their expressions possess playful curiosity.”
