Lisa Riehl
West Coast Landscapes

Lisa Riehl is an artist from Victoria, BC. She finds no shortage of inspiration for her West Coast style
landscapes – her vibrant paintings reflect her love of the beautiful scenes that surrounds her. She is
always out with her camera and sketchbook, gathering ideas for paintings at the beach, in the forest or
the mountains. She then uses these references for her brightly coloured landscapes.
Lisa has been seriously painting since 2004. She is self-taught, but has learned much from the
numerous painting workshops she has participated in. Instructors such as Brent Lynch, Mike Svob,
Janice Robertson, David Langevin, Stephen Quiller, Mark Heine and Brian Buckrell (to name just a
few) have helped contribute to her unique style. She became an Associate member of the Federation
of Canadian Artists (AFCA) in 2011 and has been in many juried art shows, including FCA shows
(both in Vancouver and Victoria), the Sidney Fine Art Show and the Sooke Fine Art Show. Lisa has also been invited to be a jury member for select art shows.

Artist’s Statement

I have always been inspired by Nature. It can bring a lot of beauty into our lives – the beauty is all
around us to see, touch, and hear. Nature’s healing effect can be profound – it has a way of affecting
our moods and it can help us to change our way of thinking for the better, from negative to positive. I
believe that being exposed to Nature’s beauty and majesty can truly have a positive effect on our
lives, in the way we look at things and in the way we feel about ourselves. I hope that my paintings
can help to share this healing effect with others and that they can feel the sense of wonder and peace

I feel when I am outside in Nature…

Each painting I create feels like a poem that is made visible. I can’t just give them boring names –
they deserve so much more! So I title each painting with a phrase that, at least to me, evokes incredible meaning in my heart.
