Lisa Leskien

Join us in welcoming our next feature artist from the show, Lisa Leskien!

Lisa Leskien is an artist on the loose. Always exploring with her camera in hand, she enjoys collecting inspiration from the beautiful, rugged scenery of the Frontenac Arch Biosphere near her hometown of Sydenham, Ontario. Lisa creates stylized, representational oil paintings of scenes and objects from her life that radiate joy and energy using bold brush marks, thick paint and a highly exaggerated use of colour. Lisa enjoys spreading that joy through her own artwork, but also through teaching and coaching others in their artistic journeys at the Kingston School of Art where she teaches beginner, intermediate and landscape-focused painting classes and arts workshops.

Lisa has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from York University, and a Bachelor of Education Degree from Brock University. She followed her dream to become an artist in 2021, after teaching elementary school for 16 years.
