Lisa Nelson

Based in Ayer, Massachusetts, Lisa Nelson has a BFA in Illustration from the Massachusetts College of Art and has participated in art shows all over the United States, as well as in Mexico and Europe. Her work combines a diverse background in fine art painting, printmaking, graphic design, and illustration with her interest in examining unique locations as well as the local flora and fauna to see how they fit into the world at large. Currently, she is working on a series of paintings highlighting the beautiful and unique wildlife that can be found throughout the country. As part of that project, she recently took part in a six-month artist residency at the historic Horlock House in Navasota, TX. She is also deeply committed to promoting volunteerism and environmentalism through her work and is working with the Amphibian and Reptile Conservatory in her goal to encourage wildlife preservation.
