Lisa was born and grew up in China. Influenced by her architect father, she has loved drawing and painting since her early childhood. She studied sciences in college earning a graduate school placement in Japan, where she then earned her PhD in Molecular Biology. She worked as a research scientist in China, Japan and France prior to moving to the United States in 1998. While as a research scientist, Lisa’s love of drawing and painting remained.
While living and working in Paris in 1990’s, Lisa frequented the many galleries and museums in France and other European countries. She was deeply inspired by the French Impressionists and fascinated by the Fauvists, such as Henry Matisse.
She started to take painting workshops and paint in her spare time. Largely a self-taught artist, she developed and established her own style of impressionist to express the beauty of nature by painting shapes of light and color using loose and fresh brushstrokes.
Following a growing desire in her heart, Lisa has been professionally devoted to her artwork now. She loves the freshness and spontaneous of watercolor, as well as the brushstrokes and texture of oil, so she paints in both mediums now.
Lisa’s award-winning artwork has shown in both group and solo gallery exhibitions as well as juried exhibitions. Her artwork can be found in private collections throughout the United States.
Lisa currently Lives in Laguna Niguel, CA. www.lisafu.com
