About the author

"I explore the idea of home as a place of origin. The scenes I paint are real places from my childhood. They are taken from the family cottages where I spent my summers on Lake Winnipeg, Canada. It helps me to revisit these rooms because painting them conjures up pleasant memories of the people who took me in and cared for me. My exploration of the physical embodiments and psychological notions of home, as well as conditions of presence and absence, are extensions of my emotional inquiries and reflections upon personal growth." Lisa Noble (American, b.1973, Winnipeg, Canada) began her formal artistic training at the Alberta College of Art & Design. She moved to the United States in 1997 to complete her BFA at the Corcoran College of Art & Design in Washington, D.C. During each year of study Noble’s efforts were recognized with the Dean’s Merit and Corcoran Scholarships. Noble has exhibited in Washington, D.C., Virginia, Maryland, New York, Connecticut, Florida, and California. Her work is included in many private collections across the country. She has been recognized in numerous publications including The Washington Post, The Washington CityPaper, The New York Times, Miami New Times, Miami Sun Post, D.C. Pulse Magazine, and Studio Visit Magazine. She was named one of Washington’s ‘25 Most Beautiful People’ by Washingtonian Magazine. Noble’s first exposure to art occurred at the age of four, while during a field trip with her Kindergarten class to the Winnipeg Art Gallery, she saw a painting by British artist Brigette Riley. Riley’s distinctive Op Art style of black and white form and the disorienting effects of her canvases instantly struck a chord with Noble, who was at once profoundly impacted by art’s innate power to dissolve the veneer of the every day.
