About the Artist
I Paint with Oils & Watercolour
Thank you for wanting to learn more about me. My name is Lisa Dautremont and art has been present my whole life even though I didn’t have formal training. Art classes weren’t available in the rural area that I grew up in. But I found myself doodling and sketching frequently. Interestingly penmanship was something I took great pride in and noted that a signature is uniquely our own. In the same way, art is our voice and as my painting is ever evolving I hope that my artistic voice will become stronger and remain uniquely mine.
My passion is to paint directly from life when possible. I love being outdoors. Born, raised, and living all my life in the prairies of Saskatchewan, Canada, I love the vast lands and beautiful skies here. But I would find it hard to limit my painting to local scenes. I’m also drawn to our neighbouring Rocky Mountains, people, animals, plants, and all that captures my eye! Now that I have retired from nursing and launched 4 adult children, I get to focus on my painting. I’m very thankful to my husband and family for their understanding of time spent painting and support. I feel very blessed and see my painting as a gift in which I get to closely view what our Creator has made!
