Lisa S. Tureson is an American painter whose original work is shown in galleries and showrooms in New York, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Washington, DC, High Point, Chicago and many cities in between. Her commercial work is widely published and distributed internationally. Her work has won local and International juried competitions and is in the collections of private clients as well as hotels, universities and businesses.
Background: Like many artists, this is not her first career; it is her first love and she has been painting all her life. She enjoyed growing up with a teaching art studio in the home where her mother taught painting. After completing her degree, and in addition to the wide variety of art and design classes she had completed, she embarked on a self- directed course of study. She sought out working artists with International reputations, who had teaching studios devoted to her various interests.
Combining her passion for interior design with her love of painting she has worked primarily with the Washington, DC Interior Design community on private commissions. Her heightened sense of color and composition has earned her a designation as a highly trusted resource. This type of career has created a body of work that is unusually varied, as each project is site specific, created for its own unique purpose. These pieces reflect her aesthetic response to place and can be as varied as abstract, trompe L’Oeil, stylized realism, expressionism, and murals; whatever is called for. Her gallery installations are primarily acrylic and mixed media thematic studies of color, form, texture or subject.
Twice voted Designer’s Top Choice, Lisa has a studio in Northern Virginia and is an award winning Industry Partner with the American Society of Interior designers. Her work has been widely published in national and regional magazines, newspapers and industry publications. She has been on HGTV on two different shows and has twice guest lectured at the Corcoran College of Art and Design.
