JAG Featured Member Artist
Lisa Lofton began drawing and painting with her mother while she was still in the single digits of her existence. She studied Architecture at the University of Florida, married and went to UNF for computer science. She ended up working in computer technologies for the better part of her life, 12 years working for Bank of America as a Senior Project Manager and 12 years spent as a Graphic Designer and Marketing Manager for a European Linen retailer.
In late 2018 she decided to leave the conventional workforce behind and pursue her desire to create. Lisa is a 2-D Artist who works primarily with acrylic on canvas and also uses a variety of mixed media. Her current works depict Jacksonville and Florida as a whole. Her paintings are influenced by the architecture, people, landscape, and industry of her city and state. Lisa’s dramatic illustrative style invites an emotional connection to a time and place.
She is a member of the Art League of Jacksonville, the Secretary of the Jacksonville Artist Guild, and the Vice President of the Art Center Cooperative, Inc.
