About Lisa: Lisa O’Keefe graduated with an Honours Degree in Painting from the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaus-Arts in Paris where she lived between 1972 and 1987.

Her work is figurative, though not traditional in style,  and is concerned with an attempt to marry more abstract spaces with these figurative elements. It  is built up of layers of paint that are often rubbed, spattered, sponged and incised until the desired effect is achieved. Colour and texture play an important role, along with whimsy and a desire to convey, in some way, some of the feelings that life, places and events inspire in us.

She has always worked as a full-time artist and exhibits on a regular basis.  Her work features in collections, both private and corporate, in Europe, Australia and the USA. Our feature image is Lisa’s work entitled ‘Summer Living’.
