Lisa Gleim is an an award-winning landscape artist part of a family of successful Southern artists. She is a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and is the Audubon Artists 2012 Gold Medal of Honor for Pastel recipient, and Audubon Artists 2013 Art Spirit Foundations Gold Medal Award for Pastel recipient. Lisa works in both pastel and oil and achieves two very different styles from each medium. She is particularly interested in capturing the beauty of light and how it affects the landscape. She paints on location as often as possible—her destinations of choice are usually coastal, especially the Low Country regions of the South. Painting these coastal scenes reminds her of the childhood summers she spent at Pawley’s Island, South Carolina. After studying and working in Philadelphia for eight years, Lisa moved back to her hometown of Atlanta where she maintains her studio and residence with her husband, daughter and three rescue dogs.
