A tear has been added to this photo of Lisa Esser's painting to express our sorrow over the loss of innocent life in Newtown, Connecticut.
Lisa Esser is a self-taught artist. She said that she grew up painting oils on barn-siding and her mom encouraged her to paint their garbage cans so they could have the prettiest cans on the side of the road. "My mother encouraged me to paint whatever I could get my hands on, and I have dabbled in it all."
"Whatever emotion I am feeling is seen on my canvas. I paint from my heart. Some might say I am an emotional artist. I believe art brings healing and have become fearless to express myself."
Esser has a studio at the Loveland Artists Studios on Main at 529 Main Street in Loveland. She can be contacted by e-mail.
