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!
I now paint every day and when not locked down I also enjoy teaching individual & small group workshops here from my studio for parts of the year. I had my 3rd solo exhibition of close to 50 paintings at 'Marvellous Art Gallery & Hub Leicester' in 2019 & exhibit in group exhibitions across the UK. I sell original paintings & a limited number of prints & greetings cards here at my website, through UK galleries & other venues. I'm also on all the main social media sites as above. If you're interested in buying one of my paintings you can view it here in Foxton or at another venue or gallery closer to where you live.
This website shows work that is for sale here at my gallery in Foxton, at 'Marvellous Art Gallery' in Leicester and in other venues around Leicestershire & the Midlands. My work is owned by private collectors across the UK, in The Netherlands, Germany, France and Italy. I am also represented by British Contemporary Art and Saatchi Art.
I enjoy getting suggestions for names and feedback for my new paintings on my Facebook & Instagram pages, 'Lisa Timmerman Paints'. This is also where I update news daily of work in progress, studio & gallery event dates.
