Lisa Larrabee is most recognized for her unique figurative paintings that stylistically blur the boundaries between the figure and their environment. Her paintings visually convey the intangible connection between people, nature and the subconscious. Lisa creates artwork that allows us to slow down and contemplate our relationship to others and to the world around us.

Lisa builds an expressive and textured surface using oil and cold wax medium with improvised tools, rollers and pallet knives before refining her image with traditional oil painting methods.

The effect feels both timeless and contemporary. Specific details come into focus while others are left to be completed in the mind of the viewer. As you can see below, the result is ethereal poetry.
