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.
