About the Artist:
Lisa Blaylock grew up in the east foothills on a 24 acre apricot ranch. This is where she
developed a great love for all things "farming", from rusted round tractor discs left in the field, to
the long tall Eiffel tower like ladders used to pick "cots".
Lisa made things as a child and had an insatiable desire to make things from natural materials
like burlap, shells, wax. Lisa at the age of 19 left home for Hawaii where she was surrounded by tropical flowers and crashing oceans influencing her desire to paint the beauty of her memory. All of these experiences lay dormant during her early entry into the fast field of real estate sales and a successful real estate career.
Nearly 30 years later, during which time she utilized her creativity negotiating and selling real estate, she picked up the watercolor brush. It was in 2010 at the insistence of her ailing French grandmother, Maco, who adamantly told her "take a painting class and get started, don't wait till you retire, do it now".
Lisa during the last few years has devoted every spare minute to painting and sketching.
