Lisa Garrison

Lisa Garrison is an award winning self-taught artist from Littleton, Colorado. She began painting in 2009 while living in Illinois, focusing on realistic watercolors. Her watercolor paintings are created with glazes, bringing out the reflection and contrast of light and shadow.

Lisa is passionate about teaching and demystifying the unpredictability of watercolor. As a data analyst by trade, she is very detail oriented and equally left-brain/right-brain. Watercolor is a fluid medium that can be difficult to control and adjust. She enjoys teaching the planning and forethought that realistic watercolor painting requires and teaching others how to be successful with the medium.

She is currently exploring more free and intuitive methods of painting and is working toward creating a new body of work that expresses complex emotions abstractly.

Her work has been exhibited in many national juried exhibitions in Colorado and New York. It has also been seen in Tatler magazine.

Lisa currently works out of her home in Centennial, Colorado, where she lives with her family.
