For over 8 years, Lisa Pedersen channeled her “I wanna be an artist” energy when she volunteered as a Young at Art docent for the Hermosa Beach, CA school district. Despite having dabbled with art before, August 2015 marked the day Lisa decided to paint daily (yes, daily) for herself, feverishly attending art classes throughout Los Angeles county and beyond. As a way to unleash years of creativity kept under raps, Lisa’s painting practice begins with meditation, as a way to attune to her intuition that guides her into color and image selection for her paintings. Her work has been showcased at local area events and most recently, downtown Los Angeles' Art Share LA, accepted one of her pieces into their “Mirrors of the Mind” exhibition. September 2016, Lisa “live” painted at the South Bay Yoga Conference while the sounds of accompanying rhythms and music serenaded the attendees.
Upcoming events include “live” painting at a retirement party, yoga class, children’s ballet class and facilitating a group art project to honor the birthday guest of honor. Lisa welcomes all opportunities to share her gifts and believes in giving back by making greeting cards for hospitalized patients. Her art is sold via local retailers and on her website: www.lisapedersenart.com, with a portion of all sales/commissions donated to the "Portraits of Hope Project" - an initiative Lisa holds near and dear to her heart.
