Keynote Speaker and Guest Artist
Lisa Lebofsky presents paintings that explore our emotional and physical relationship with nature. She holds her BFA in metals from SUNY New Paltz, and MFA in painting from New York Academy of Art. Lebofsky finds inspiration by traveling extensively, often to remote parts of the world, in order to immerse herself in different environments and cultures. She seeks out areas around the globe that are particularly susceptible to the impacts of climate change, and meets with local residents to discuss how their community is impacted. Regions visited include Antarctica, Newfoundland and Labrador, Greenland, and The Maldives.
Currently, Lisa is in the midst of a multi-year mission to travel around North America painting en plein air, to better know the changes happening in our environment and the people it is affecting.
