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.
Botanical art was growing in New Mexico in 2013. Lisa's work was featured in the juried group show, Viva Flora, at Santa Fe Community Gallery in August and she was invited to paint flora, as the guest artist at the opening of the new Santa Fe Botanical Garden, in July.
