about the artist 

Lisa Roy grew up in Northern Ontario and studied fine art and graphic design at Sheridan. After an 18 year art director career, she left it behind to become an expat in Ireland and Dubai and paint full time. After a career of precision and staying within the lines, she discovered the energy that comes from painting intuitively.
She works in series as she explores her ideas and alongside her abstract work, her recent move from BC to Nova Scotia inspired her abstract landscape series, Life Shift. Her work has been exhibited across Canada and is in private collections internationally. She paints in her studio overlooking the beach in beautiful Kingsburg, Nova Scotia.
