Lisabelle's Artist Statement
Hello and welcome to Art By Lisabelle. I have over twenty-two years of portrait painting experience. I welcome you to view my accomplishments in Oil, Pastel, Watercolor and Acrylic Portraits. I have studied after the greats, i.e. John Singer Sergeant, Rembrandt and Valesquez and more. By reading, studying and practicing new techniques with every painting, each artwork is a creative endeavor, applying newly acquired knowledge to my artworks, always in an inspired way. Every portrait is unique from it's inception to it's completion. Every face and expression put to painting canvas, is internalized, then externalized with dedication and skill, from the mind, ability and heart of this artist. It's been noted that my works are emotive. It seems my portrait paintings express genuine feelings. In a world where we can speak to anyone, anywhere instantly, via the internet keeping us globally connected each and every second, Art is more appreciated than ever. Creative human portrayals are not out of fashion. The portrait paintings you see here are directly connected to my feelings, perceptions, experience and years of dedicated painting as a passionate discipline.
