Paintings ready to hang
I am a Leicestershire based artist working from my studio in Foxton, near Market Harborough, England.
I trained at Loughborough and Bristol Colleges of Art where I went on to do a degree in Fashion and Textiles. I worked for many years as a designer in the fashion industry in London and East Asia before settling back in Leicestershire with my Dutch husband & our 3 sons.
I have always had painting in my head and seen life through the eyes of a painter, disturbing me when I’m sleeping and distracting me when I’m driving! I'm sure over the years my family have thought my mind was elsewhere, I was just working out how I'd mix that colour!
In August 2 0 1 1, I decided it was time to set myself a target to catch up for the lost painting years. It was no good coming out as a painter if I didn’t have any paintings but these things take time! I decided I needed 50 paintings by the time I was 50. This website displays those & more recent paintings.
More recently, I try to paint every day but I also enjoy teaching workshops & courses here from my studio for parts of the year. I exhibit widely, have my own gallery here in Foxton & sell original paintings & a limited number of prints of my paintings on-line, here at my website & on all the main social media sites as above.
My 'Hen House' & other paintings are for sale in The Cank Street Gallery in Leicester. This website shows those & other work that is around the midlands, Norfolk, Derbyshire & in The Netherlands. My work is now in many private collections around the UK, in The Netherlands & Germany & thanks to my first London Art Fair at Chelsea Town Hall, some of my original paintings are in Russian family homes in Chelsea. Hens seem to have an international appeal although I do paint many other things!
If you would like to contact me or leave any feedback please feel free to do so on my workshops or contact me page.
I enjoy getting suggestions for names and feedback for my new paintings on my Facebook page, 'Lisa Timmerman Paints', this is also where I update news of open studio & gallery sale dates.
Thank you so much for visiting!
