2014 botanical art class in Grenada, West Indies - made posssible in part by ASBA and Peak Institute.
Born in Venezuela to American parents, artist/instructor Lisa Coddington, grew up in the American suburbs with an appreciation for exploring the outdoors. Now residing in Santa Fe, New Mexico the artist is surrounded with new views of art forms familiar to her from favorite childhood folk art gifts her parents brought from travels abroad. The art objects cultivated her appreciation for global aesthetic diversity, and introduced to her a visual language that transcends cultural barriers. Her watercolors depict subjects that are beautiful, sometimes whimsical, and preferably delicious. Short introductory drawing, watercolor, and botanical art classes are designed for the visiting tourists. Lisa's work was featured in the juried group show, Viva Flora, at Santa Fe Community Gallery in 2013 and her work is currently represented by Ernesto Mayans Gallery on Canyon Road, Santa Fe, New Mexico. She teaches Botanical Drawing and watercolor classes at Santa Fe Community College, UNM, and travels to teach special art workshops. This year Lisa is developing a series of New Mexico wildflowers. Each rainy season brings new flowers and new paintings. Stayed tuned for more paintings and new classes!
December, 2015- Santa Fe Artist Medical Fund Auction - Lisa was glad to donate a botanical watercolor. Thanks to all who support our Santa Fe arts community!
Painting Commission compliment
"I received the standing cypress painting. To say the least, I am very pleased. The painting is lovely. The detailed flowers, the different creatures, the pencil drawings - all contribute to an interesting and beautiful painting. Thank you for taking on this project. I will proudly display this painting of one of my favorite wildflowers."
