About

Artist Comments
A garden vividly blooms aside purple pansies and thick towering lavenders. Flowers deeply resonate with artist Lisa Elley. She quotes Greek philosopher, Aristotle, "In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous." Lisa renders her pieces only with the use of a palette knife creating a marvelous thick texture, leaping off the canvas in her signature deep impasto style.


About the Artist
Working almost exclusively with a palette knife, Lisa Elley maneuvers her artistic blade with an uncanny fluidity. Why paint only with the knife? She says, "when I paint with a brush, which I do occasionally, I tend to focus on the detail. With a palette knife I can't focus on the detail too much, so my paintings are looser, and more gestural, with bigger sweeps and strokes." This technique is called wet-on-wet. And it seems to be quite popular, as she has been bestowed the title "Knife Queen" by her facebook fans. Fun fact: Lisa's high school art teacher told her to study harder at math, as a career in art was "impossible."
