A classically trained, representational artist with degrees in fine art and education, LISA CUNNINGHAM finds inspiration in her travels and everyday surroundings. Her art aims to evoke that sense of connection experienced when we encounter the history and culture architecture embodies.
Using soft pastels and layering techniques, her compositions are representational, yet painterly, allowing the dramatic play of light and shadow to reveal the character behind the subject matter.
An award-winning artist, Cunningham is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America, an elected artist member of the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, The Salmagundi Club, and The American Artists Professional League in New York City. Other signature memberships include the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod, The Connecticut Pastel society, and the Pastel Society of New Jersey. Her work has been featured in numerous publications, including Fine Art Connoisseur.
