Lisa Ernst began painting and studying art full time in 1993 after leaving a successful career in the computer industry, where she served as CFO and CEO respectively, of Arnet Corporation in Nashville, TN. She has shown her work in many group and solo exhibitions throughout the U.S. Lisa's art was featured in the January 2002 edition of American Artist Magazine, the nation's top selling art publication. A colorist and contemporary realist, Lisa uses the vibrancy of acrylic paint, applied in washes, to amplify nature's colors and forms. Her subjects include florals, still lifes and landscapes. Lisa's work hangs in private and corporate collections throughout the United States, and she frequently accepts large-scale commissions. From 1993 to 1995 Lisa studied intensively with the noted artist Walter Bunn Gray (1934- 2002) who had a successful fine arts career in New York City prior to his retirement in Franklin, TN. Lisa occasionally accepts dedicated art students for private study.
Commissioned paintings are available if you have a particular flower you would like Lisa to paint.
