I am a gallery represented, award winning artist, living in the San Francisco Bay Area. I paint in oil every day, almost exclusively with palette and painting knives, which gives my art distinct texture, and a beautiful sense of movement.

Palette Knife Art; Original Oil Paintings by Award Winning San Francisco Bay Artist Lisa Elley

My story starts on a little farm in New Zealand, surrounded by rolling green hills, a menagerie of animals, and countless hours of sketching. As the youngest of four, and living on one modest income, toys were minimal, and my Mom was masterful at scratching out a living, growing our food, and making our clothing, which instilled a wonderful ingenuity in me.

Due to a deep love of travel, and a passion for experiencing new things, I have lived in London and New York, met my husband (who is South African) in Thailand in 1999 and after 15 years living in Florida, we are now living in the San Francisco Bay Area, which is alive with artistic inspiration.

My passion for palette knife painting is greatly influenced by my surroundings. One of the most wonderful things about being an artist is the visual perspective it gives you on everyday things. I can often be spotted hanging out my car window at the lights trying to capture a photo of a random scattering of wildflowers that grow so prolifically here in California, despite the drought. When I go for an evening walk I'm often looking up at the dappled light filtering through the tree canopy, contemplating how to capture the form with my knives. I like to people watch, wishing they would stay still, so I can sketch them. I'm that person grovelling on the ground with my camera, as I'm a big fan of flowers in the foreground of my paintings. Although I love to paint 'Plein Air', the reality of busy modern life lends more towards being alert to paintable moments, photographing them, and painting them later in the studio, when my two girls are at school, and I can focus.

So Thanks for looking at my shop, please feel free to ask me any questions. I paint many smaller painting, as I am a 'daily painter'. It's in my DNA. Most of my paintings can be scaled larger, so if you see a painting that you would like a different size, please convo me to discuss options.

Thanks for stopping by, and welcome to my world of color!

Cheers, Lisa

    All my paintings are oil on canvas, using mainly palette knives, with thick application, bold strokes, painterly detail and rich colors. The palette knife gives my art a unique combination of contrast, fluidity, depth, texture and impact. Enjoy!
