Lisa Willits

(https://www.lisawillits.com)

Lisa Willits moved to Charleston nearly 30 years ago from her hometown of Erie, Pennsylvania.

While working as a technician in a research lab by day, she began taking evening art classes at the Gibbes Museum School in Charleston. After experimenting with several different mediums, Lisa chose oil painting because it best captured her love of color. With the encouragement of family and friends, she "took the leap" and began working full-time as a painter in 2005. Lisa is most inspired by the natural beauty of the South Carolina coast and strives to capture its enchanting atmosphere. It is little wonder that glowing skies, tranquil waters, and towering pines are among her favorite subjects.

Lisa is an exhibiting member of the Charleston Artist Guild, an associate member of Oil Painters of America, and past coordinator of Charleston Outdoor Painters Association (COPA). She was also a past Director of Artistic Growth for the Charleston Artist Guild. She is also a participant in the annual Piccolo Spoleto Outdoor Art Exhibition in Marion Square, a juried show of South Carolina artists.
