Lisa Mee

Lisa Mee is an Irish-Korean-American artist who lives and works in New York City. She studied drawing, painting and printmaking as a child which continued through her college years at Fordham University. Shortly after entering the university, she met her husband-to-be, the artist, Wayne Ensrud, who is the only living protégée of the great Expressionist Austrian artist, Oskar Kokoschka, a student of Gustav Klimt. He encouraged and mentored Lisa’s painting explorations and experiments in ‘plein-air’ drawing and painting techniques. Her palette became enlarged by fabric, paper and collage elements as well as metallic gilding paint, opening new creative possibilities and developing her own unique style. By integrating papers, fabrics and metals, she creates harmonic works of art. Her impasto application of paints and collage elements lend a sculptural, luminous effect to her art.

Her passion for natural beauty is evident in her work. She captures vivid light and hues by integrating metallic paints into the painting surface. She transforms familiar vistas by using borders and spatial differentiations, combining them into stunning interpretations of bold colors with immediate emotional impact. Her extensive travels abroad in Spain, Italy and France inspired many of her expansive landscape compositions. Her uniquely opulent artform conveys a stained-glass effect of mosaic-like patterns and light on canvas.

Her unique mixed media approach has caught the eyes of important art collectors in New York City as well as Europe where her works are found in numerous corporate and private collections. She has participated in over 20 solo and group exhibitions where her work has been shown in galleries in New York, Paris, West Palm Beach, California, Vermont as well as her first solo exhibition at the International Museum of American Art in San Francisco in March 2020.
