In 2010, Lisa J Levasseur took two months off of work and began painting. Frustrated that she was unable to put her vision on canvas, she decided to try abstract imagery and took the dried up paint she had wasted trying to create a painting and sculpted it into artwork. She has since developed a range of different techniques using recycled paint, which evolved into her unique art form, PaletteArt.
“I created PaletteArt because I couldn’t bear to throw away dried up old paint. It then became a more scientific project,” Levasseur says. “Basically I had to figure out how to get paint to do everything it isn’t designed to do.”
Levasseur’s work has been featured in books and exhibitions in New York and Palm Desert. She also runs the Terracana Ranch Resort in Canada’s Rocky Mountains, which also serves as an art center with a studio where industry professionals can learn how to use PaletteArt and recycled paint to create new products.
