Lisa Olivarez is best known for her expressive, colorful landscapes painted in pastel, oil, and acrylic. She draws inspiration from her environment and mainly focuses on interpreting the beauty and complexity of nature. Her paintings come to life with energetic strokes, saturated color, and kinetic brushwork. Lisa frequently looks for excuses to exaggerate color, sometimes pushing the image to the brink of abstraction.

Olivarez holds a B.F.A.  from Wayne State University in Detroit and continues to develop her artistic practices in workshops and through artist's residences in the US and Greece.  Her backyard studio is surrounded by nature and sits just west of Kalamazoo, Michigan.
