Award winning artist Lisa Upchurch Moore was born and raised in Northwest Georgia. Surrounded by artists, educators and free thinkers, Lisa was taught to look at the world in a way that enabled her to appreciate the beauty and wonder that surrounds all of us .That open way of thinking and seeing led Lisa to develop the skill of creativity that took her through sixteen years in the corporate world as an organizational development and design specialist. In short, her personal and work life passionately led her to a career as a professional artist.
Currently Lisa’s creative progression is influenced by the emotions of everyday life. Lisa creates paintings that evoke a sense of the familiar. Her soulful renditions of everyday subjects help the viewer transcend to another place and time. Lisa’s work has been described as romantic, sensuous and poetic. A gifted colorist, she paints exceptional figures, children and rural settings. Lisa’s work is instinctive and brings to life the underlying theme of the beauty that exists in our lives.
“People are bombarded daily with images of all that is wrong and ugly in our world. Sometimes that constant flow of negativity establishes an overarching cynicism and melancholy… and we forget that we have a choice in our perspective. I am inspired by… The beauty of the figure both human and horse in motion or at rest. The feeling of love and joy when watching children at play and the history of old worn out buildings.I love capturing the essence of those people, places or things and bringing their soul forward to view and feel. My hope is that through my art, viewers will choose to tap into the feelings of joy, comfort, and happiness that stem from the simple things of everyday life … holding a child’s hand, feeling the warmth of an animal, or remembering a place or time that holds meaning.”
