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 I also enjoy teaching individual & small group workshops here from my studio for parts of the year. My koi fish paintings were recently featured in the Royal Society of British Artists Annual Exhibition 2021 & my NHS Portraits were exhibited at Leciester Royal Infirmary. 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.
My artworks are for sale here at my gallery in Foxton, and across several online galleries and platforms. 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, Saatchi Art , Big Cartel
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.
