Award-winning landscape artist Lisa Gleim is part of a family of successful Southern artists. She is a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and is the Audubon Artists 2012 old Medal of Honor for Pastel recipient, and Audubon Artists 2013 Art Spirit Foundations Gold Medal Award for Pastel recipient. She is also the 2016 Artist of the Year for the Atlanta branch of the American Pen Women. Lisa works in both pastel and oil and achieves two very different styles from each medium. She is particularly interested in capturing the beauty of light and how it affects the landscape. She paints on location as often as possible—her destinations of choice are usually coastal or mountains, especially around water. Painting these scenes reminds her of the beauty and power of nature.
Lisa is a Signature Member of the American Society of Marine Artists, Pastel Society of America and the American Women Artists; Member of Excellence and Signature Member of the Southeastern Pastel Society; Full Member of Audubon Artists and the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club; Associate Member of the Oil Painters of America, Society of Animal Artists and Allied Artists of America; an Elected Member of the American Artists Professional League; and a member of the Atlanta Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
After studying and working in Philadelphia for eight years, Lisa moved back to her hometown of Atlanta in 2000 where she maintains her full-time studio and residence. She also spends as much time as possible in Big Sky, Montana where she has a second home.
