Lisa E. Schramek Adams/L.E.S.A.

My paintings typically depict the creatures, nature, and landscapes of Southeast Alaska. I paint to reflect on personal observations and understandings about the dynamics and connections in our area. This region is shaped by water, from ice carved fjords to rain-soaked gardens. The blues, grays, and lush greens surrounding us often seep into my palette and are balanced by the brilliant color of sunsets or wildflowers. The process of painting, experimenting with color and shape to form pleasing calm compositions provides endless inspiration. I also enjoy bouncing into other art or craft mediums and teaching others.
