Lisa Gleim

American Art Collector - - Artist Focus -

Lisa Gleim loves paint­ing light and shadow and how it af­fects her sub­jects, ex­plain­ing, “It’s fas­ci­nat­ing to watch the colors and shad­ows rad­i­cally change, mo­ment to mo­ment.” From the misty gloom that hangs around af­ter a storm or the warm glow of the golden hour to sun­light creep­ing through a win­dow, Gleim be­lieves dra­matic light­ing brings life to her paint­ings.

Pas­tels have been the medium of choice for Gleim ever since a fam­ily friend gifted her French pas­tels af­ter grad­u­at­ing from the Penn­syl­va­nia Academy of the Fine Arts in the mid-1990s. Pas­tels pro­vide her the abil­ity to draw with pure pig­ment and are what drives her de­sire to cre­ate vivid scenes of at­mos­phere and light.

Many of her paint­ings are strongly in­flu­enced by her love of na­ture and an­i­mals. She says, “I want my paint­ings to evoke a mem­ory or emo­tion for the viewer and then con­tinue to nour­ish it.”

Gleim is rep­re­sented by Ch­eryl Newby Gallery in Paw­leys Is­land, South Carolina; At­lanta Artist Col­lec­tive in Ge­or­gia; and Lovetts Gallery in Tulsa, Ok­la­homa.
