Bio & Resume



LisaWithLotusPainting - 1.jpg

Lisa JonesMoore graduated from Colorado State University, with a BFA in Graphic Design. She studied under Phil Risbeck and John Sorbie, award-winning international poster designers. After working as a designer and illustrator in Denver, San Francisco and Seattle, she decided to pursue her passion for pastel landscapes, encaustic painting (molten beeswax, pigment), mixed media collage, art assemblage and photography.

Her love of Latino folk art and Mexican culture, as well as the beauty of all things worn and aged, permeates her work. Nature, "genius loci" (spirit of place), Wabi-Sabi and the “Universal Femme" continue show up as consistent themes.

Lisa’s works are part of private collections in the Northwest, Midwest and East coast of the United States. Her works have been exhibited in both the United States and Canada, and have been published in encaustiZINE (Winter 2018-2019), The Pulse of Mixed Media: 100 Artists Revealed (North Light Books), Cloth•Paper•Scissors, Somerset Studio, Somerset’s Life Images, Somerset Workshop and IndieArts DVD magazines. Lisa currently teaches encaustic and mixed media art workshops in the Greater Seattle area, and in hew new studio in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
