M Y B A C K G R O U N D:
All my paintings are oil on canvas, using mainly palette & painting knives, with thick application, bold strokes, painterly detail and rich colors.
The palette knife gives my art a unique combination of contrast, fluidity, depth, texture and impact. I do not typically use a brush, as I prefer the way I can mix buttery paints and smear them on my canvas with a flexible metal blade. The amazing thick texture achieved with the knife reflects the light more than a regular brush painting and gives a beautiful sense of movement, with subtle highlights.
I am originally from New Zealand, where the beauty of nature is unsurpassed.The luminescent beauty of our amazing world inspires me, and I feel it in every stroke. I try to reflect this in my work and invite you to enjoy it as I do.

Y E A R: 2015

Berkeley



San Francisco Art, California Berkeley Painting, Golden Gate Bridge, 8x10, Free Easel, Textured Oil, California Landscape, Palette Knife Art

T I T L E: Berkeley (#495) by Lisa Elley

Y E A R: 2015

I N S P I R E D*B Y: We went for a Sunday drive to hang out in Berkeley, which is so much more earthy than techy silicon valley. Much more about the book you're reading and not the Tesla you are driving! If you drive (or walk) up into the hills, you get an amazing view across the San Francisco Bay. I particularly like this view with the foliage in the foreground, and the Golden Gate bridge peeking out in the distance.

S I Z E: 8 X 10 X ¾ Inches.

I N S P I R E D* B Y:World-renowned Carmel-by-the-Sea has inspired artists, sparked romances, and attracted celebrities for decades. Rated a top-10 destination in the U.S. year after year, Carmel-by-the-Sea is an amazing, European-style village nestled above a picturesque white-sand beach, where these lupins were blooming away on a blustery April morning. We often take a drive away from the San Francisco Bay to the Monterey bay and beyond, where you can leave the hustle of the city behind and come back in time a few years. Magic!
