Lisa Ridgers is a primarily, self-taught artist since 2000, having learned her craft in Phoenix, Arizona in the USA. However, what many people do not know about her, is that she started out her life in the mortgage business in the UK and soon became the youngest commercial underwriter in the history of the company at the age of 19. At the age of 22, Lisa set out on a personal quest to explore the USA starting out as an au pair in the Philladelphia area and from there found herself travelling across the country to ultimately settle in the Southwest of the USA for nearly 14 years. Lisa turned down a junior stockbroker position with PaineWebber, and threw caution to the wind, after meeting an artist at a party that spotted one of her sketches and offered to teach her how to paint.
She found many passions in the desert along with her new found career in art. The love for travel, photography, Mexican cuisine, and spectacular landscapes being chiefest amongst them. She found love and good friends, and her beautiful daughter was born there - her greatest passion of all. Lisa's other favourite pastimes include cooking, hiking, socializing with good friends, and doing what she can to help the charities that she supports.
Lisa has enjoyed much success in the world of art, 2007 found her at one of the largest art/trade shows in the world, NY Expo. She has been published internationally with several major art firms, and has had the privelege of having much of her artwork placed with major international corporations and US television studios. Quite often it is possible to see an original Lisa Ridgers go by on such shows as "Grey's Anatomy" and "The Big Bang Theory".
Lisa and her family recently returned to the South Coast of the UK bringing her business, and her dingo Yoyo, with her. This move and the new surroundings that went with it created a change in her painting. We are seeing a wider variety of colours and hues, imagery that is reminiscent of the sea, and a creative explosion in her line of abstracts.
