March 2018 – Community Gallery
Artworks by Lisa Kretchman

Exhibition: March 2nd – 16th, 2018



Lisa Kretchman lives in happy chaos with an artist, two cats, a cockatiel, and a Dingo in Webster, MA.  A graduate of Massachusetts College of Art, Lisa began her career as a traditional illustrator using soft pastels and scratchboard. While attending college, she was introduced to computer arts including graphic design and Photoshop illustration. Those blended skills allowed her to create digital art for the software industry, and eventually animation and multimedia development. After working over 15 years on electronic learning and multimedia, Lisa began exploring tangible and personal artwork again. Returning to painting, she began experimenting with mixed-media, blending watercolor, pastel, and metallic inks and leaf. Much of her current work is influenced by nature, and the beauty of the Blackstone Valley and New England area.


Lisa has exhibited in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, including the Warwick Museum of Art, the Attleboro Arts Museum, the RI Convention Center Flower Show (as part of the American Heart Association Garden), and the Quinebaug Valley Council for the Arts & Humanities.  More examples of the artist’s work, her process, and her charity projects can be seen at her website: www.lisakretchman.com





Much of my work is inspired by nature – landscapes, seascapes and botanicals. I enjoy taking reference photos of the diverse environment of my native New England home. I find these explorations both joyful and peaceful, and I try to communicate those feelings through my artwork. Often the pieces are bold and colorful, and I use vibrant pastels to add impact and emotion to the art. 


I have lately been creating more narrative and symbolic works. I react to the beauty of my surroundings and want to convey a deeper emotional response. The artwork is becoming a journey to understand my creative self, and so my thoughts, questions and beliefs are sometimes added to the art in stream-of-thought writing. The paintings vary, becoming looser and more textural as I experiment with media and deeper personal discovery. Part of this journey has led me to try less precise and formal framing, and occasionally I will rely on layers of encaustic medium to seal watercolor and pastel. I also add metallic inks and metal leaf to contrast with the surface and reflect back light, and will sometimes incorporate found objects into my work.


It has been a joy to participate in the flower show at Attleboro Arts Museum in live painting each year, and I have included some of that artwork in this exhibit. I hope you feel tranquility seeing them as well as the potential for growth in these living things represented here. And the feeling that we can grow out of the cold and into the light, as we come out of winter and anticipate spring.
