Lisa Kimberly Glickman holds a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and a Diploma of Education and Master of Education (in the arts) from McGill University. As a working artist, she has exhibited publicly since 1984. Her work is held in private collections in the United States, Canada and Europe.

Lisa Kimberly Glickman’s artistic projects focus on the natural world. She combines her intuition, research and creativity. She uses paint as a base but combines it with other media such as wood, foil or embroidery. She merges traditional craft and modern materials to explore the relationship between nature and the human experience, between her personal reality and her utopian vision of beauty. Sustainability and the fragility and impermanence of our ecosystem is her great preoccupation and the driving force behind her artwork.

She intends to bring attention to the birds, plants, animals, forest trails and streams being obliterated in the name of progress and development. Her time spent walking and riding her horse through trails, taking photographs and observing nature up close provide the backbone of her artistic process.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Nature is my muse and a driving force in my life. My art takes its cues from nature. I take photos and sketch so that I can use these references later on in the studio. I like to create a silent dialogue between my art and the viewer that educates, excites and informs. I hope my art speaks for nature in a way that gives it a voice. Doing what I can do to protect the natural environment is a moral obligation and imperative for me.

I have an Instagram "friend", Megan (thehummingbirdphotographer.com) - and she takes astonishing photos- and said I could use them in my paintings. In Native American culture, hummingbirds are seen as healers and bringers of love, good luck and joy. In Central America, they are a sign of love and will bring love to the person who spots them. Hummingbirds alone have the ability to fly moving their wings in the pattern of an infinity symbol (the figure 8). Hummingbirds also symbolize great courage, determination, flexibility and adaptability. Which we all need now. Hibiscus are a sign of positive feminine energy, and this varietal, “Fiesta” is the one I own. Rainbow trout, resident of Quebec lakes and streams, is also a symbol of hope, love, and community. This painting was painted specifically during the pandemic lockdown.

From photos I took in Costa Rica. The egret as a symbol refers to self-reliance, determination, balance, spirituality and your innate wisdom. An egret is sharp, direct and to the point. An egret represents following your own path.
