“My paintings are an intuitive experiment in layers of colour, shape and texture. I’m inspired by my surroundings, my memories and the dialogue in my head. My work combines a tension of gestural mark making and consciously executed elements with layers of colour. There is a definite chaos as each painting evolves until eventually a visual order seems to emerge. My hope is to create an abstracted reality that each viewer can bring their own feelings or memory to.”

Lisa Roy studied art and graphic design at Sheridan and eventually left her career as an art director to become an expat overseas and create. She studied abstract expressionism and after a career of precision and staying within the lines, she discovered the freedom and energy that comes from painting intuitively. Her work has been exhibited across Canada and is in private collections internationally. She lives and paints in Oakville and her seaside escape on Salt Spring Island, BC.
