Lisa Young lives and paints in Stratham. The surrounding coastline and expansive saltwater marshes provide endless inspiration for her artwork in oil and watercolor. Her paintings live where abstract and realism overlap. Sometimes pieces end up conceptual, while other scenes demand a higher dose of realism.
“That pendulum swings painting to painting, but the end goal never changes. I strive to infuse every composition with a sense of calm and a feeling of being present. Art is my therapy, so I like to imagine the tranquility I feel while painting being passed along to anyone who enjoys my work.”
