About expat Kiwi professional San Francisco artist Lisa Elley:
Lisa is an award winning, modern palette knife artist with an unmistakable style, and colorful liveliness in her distinctive and breathtaking paintings. Given the name “The Knife Queen” by one of her facebook fans, Lisa maneuvers her artistic knife with an uncanny fluidity. She creates vibrant landscapes, cityscapes, and portraits, hanging internationally in collectors’ homes across the USA, England, Ireland, UAE, Australia, New Zealand, and the Netherlands. It takes a very talented and accomplished artist to use a painting or palette knife. This technique is unique, as the paint is applied very thickly, adding subtle highlights with a beautiful sense of light and movement. Combined with this, is Lisa’s outstanding ability to capture with her knife the incredible detail and personal elements that will resonate with your subconscious, and transport you into her colorful world of visual transcendence. Lisa is originally from New Zealand, where the beauty of nature is unsurpassed. The diversity in our amazing world inspires her, and she feels it in every stroke. She tries to reflect this in her work, and invites you to enjoy it as she does. www.lisaelley.com
