About the Artist

Lisa Smith Arnold lives in Branford and is an instructor at the Guilford Art Center.  She is a working and exhibiting artist throughout the Northeast.

“When I work in pastels, it almost feels like ‘soft painting,’ and when I go large and graphic, I blend my colors smoothly and quickly.  I choose to work on slick paper, unlike the more traditional pastel papers, and find that it lends itself to creating colors almost by accident.  I love how there can be a sense of urgency when working in this medium; color can move about smoothly and the large scale blending process is very forgiving”
