Jamie Lisa was born in Jeonnam, Korea in 1956. At an early age she began to draw and paint images of the lush Korean countryside. She loved the colors and beauty of nature, especially floral landscapes. Lisa enjoys painting the colorful countryside of Provence and Tuscany. Hills dappled with small cottages nestled in a grove of trees, fields of sunflowers, lavender and poppies. Her use of color is superb and her technique using thick application of paint on the canvas adds a tremendous amount of depth to her paintings.
She has won over 7 awards and honors in the National Student Fine Art Competition in Seoul, Korea. She is a recipient of the special prize at both the Competition of Fine Art at Hong-lk University and the Korean Woman Fine Art Exhibition at Sejong Cultural Center, Korea.
