Lisa DeBaets views her art as two-dimensional sculptures, molding and building layers while staying intuitively open to the possibilities of each painting. She begins with color, using bold, expressive strokes to reflect the spontaneity and joy felt while sliding paint across the surface, using any tools she can imagine. She says, “Color is my thing!”
Inspired by the beauty of creation, her husband’s smile, her little dog’s love, and colors all around her, Lisa began painting in 2013, saying art has made a major impact on her life. Painting in numerous styles in the past, she is currently having great success with expressive, exciting abstracts done in watercolor and acrylic mixed media on a variety of surfaces.
Lisa is active in numerous art communities, including NWWS, co-chairing their exhibitions for three years. She is the founder of Sketchers R Us, encouraging women to create daily and meet regularly for plein air painting.
Lisa’s art is held in many private collections, has been accepted into important shows and juried into the Indonesia International Watercolor Online Exhibition, the San Diego Watercolor Society’s 40th International Exhibition and won a bronze award in Camelback Gallery’s Bold Abstracts 2021 International Painting Competition
