Inspired by the ever-changing beauty of nature, Lisa aims to capture this essence and feeling in her paintings. Devon is a far cry from the wilds of her African childhood. Her grandmother painted the sparse expanses of the Namibian dunes. Her mother paints the arid Kalahari desert in Botswana. Perhaps it was inevitable that wherever Lisa settled, she would seek out the untamed landscapes surrounding her – the energetic rivers and the crumbling red cliffs, reminiscent of the Kalahari sands of her childhood.
The Kalahari can be a harsh environment but there is beauty whichever way you look. While Devon is less harsh, it is just as picturesque.
