Lisa Noonis Description

Born and raised in Maine, Lisa Noonis connected with art early in life. She excelled in 
her creative pursuits throughout childhood and then studied art, communications and 
advertising at University of Maine. Noonis went on to form her own award-winning 
advertising, marketing and design company. After many successful years with her  
business, she turned to painting, developing her fine art and “painting every day—still 
life, portraits, landscapes, studies of the human form, anything that would sit still in the 
studio or in front of her canvas.”  Today, Noonis’ work continues to evolve and mature as 
she explores objects, people and places. Her work is shown regularly in galleries 
throughout the country and is held in a growing number of collections around the world. 
 

Lisa Noonis Statement

I start a painting with the open mindedness of an explorer. I don't fully know where any given piece will land but am certain that if I show up to work every day, it will arrive at its destination. Ultimately the process/act of creating is as important as the final outcome.

I paint what I know--figures, still lifes, and landscapes--but push these "knowns" into abstracted places.  I combine my love of color, form, line and design without fully abandoning representation.

I work in a constant state of experimentation and discovery. My material range from oils, acrylic, and latex, to graphite, oil pastels, and collage--media whose very nature allows me the freedom  to work expressively and without hesitaion. I often work directly on lare sheets of canvs or paper on the walls, sometimeszs using tools like extension poles, squeegees and oversized paintbrushes.

As a self-taught painter, artistic growth is critical to me. While transformation is a challenge on many level, it forces me to go beyond what I think I know and feeds my curious nature.
