The Artists


Lisa Kimberly Glickman is a native Montrealer, contemporary figure and landscape painter. She has been mark-making since she could hold an implement. Glickman earned her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design in 1981; and a Diploma of Education in 1995 followed by a Masters in Education in 1998 from McGill University. Her work can be found in private collections in both the U.S. and in Canada. She exhibits her work professionally and has taught art for many years in Montreal-area schools.


Aside from human figures, her work frequently depicts animals — the other great love of her life. But whatever the subject, the chief characteristic of her work is rich layers of colour. The artist believes that colour should speak, appear to move and have a life of its own independent of — while at the same time related to — the subject portrayed.


She is particularly entranced with the effect of light on colour and aspires to get a sense of light and shadow, a feeling of the time of day or season, and evoke the mood colours can create. She loves the subtleties and nuances she can create with brushwork and drips. She generally works from a combination of life, memory and photographs that she has taken herself.
