Over the years her work has been displayed and sold in various art venues including Narciso Martinez Cultural Arts Center in San Benito, El Jardin del Arte in Edinburg, Beyond Arts Gallery and Art Nights in Harlingen, South Padre Island Convention Center’s Christmas Shows and Market Days, the 6th Annual Artrageous Fine Arts Show in Edinburg, Hope Foundation 2019, Juneteenth 2019 at the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library, and the South Texas College Pecan Campus Art Gallery. In addition, Lisa is a member of the Laguna Madre Art League and has recently joined and displays her work at the Laguna Madre Art Gallery in Port Isabel. During her time as an educator, she frequently integrated core content areas and art thus, providing her students with enriched, creative learning experiences. Other art instructional opportunities have included workshop presentations to fellow teachers, art league members at the D’Arte Studio in Harlingen, as well as Saturday art sessions for special needs children and parents at the Brownsville Children’s Museum.
She states, “My goal as an artist is to captivate my viewer’s attention long enough so that they may perceive my thoughts and understand my heart. My paintings and works are invitations for my viewers to experience color through subtle nuances or bold, dramatic displays. The unique characteristics of each of my images are meant to inspire conversations, penetrate imaginations, and ultimately entice viewers to linger longer and experience my passion for art and creative expression.”
